Leicester City goal machine Jamie Vardy says he was left “extremely impressed” by Bruno Baltazar, the newly appointed head coach at Rochester New York FC.

The Foxes striker became a co-owner of the American soccer club in the summer, buying a minority stake and overseeing a rebranding of the formerly known Rhinos.

The club are relaunching for a return to professional football next season and will enter the newly created MLS Next Pro League with Baltazar at the helm.

The Portuguese tactician previously coached at Championship outfit Nottingham Forest, working as assistant to head coach Sabri Lamouchi at the City Ground for a year until the coaching staff were sacked in October last year.

“I also can’t thank @LCFC enough for allowing me to do this, they know, and I know, that this project will not in any way distract me from my priority, which is helping Leicester to be successful for many more years to come,” Vardy wrote on social media.
