English footballer Jamie Vardy’s comment in Pidgin English, commonly spoken in Nigeria, has entertained fans online.
Vardy was responding to teammate Wilfred Ndidi’s comment about him breaking a corner flag during celebrations.
Kelechi Iheanacho had shared a photo on Instagram and asked Ndidi what he was looking at.
He responded: “Corner flag wey Vardy break .. lol”.
Vardy replied: “No be me do am” – meaning, I did not do it.
Vardy scored Leicester City’s winning goal against Sheffield United and snapped the flag getting a yellow card for it.
Nigerians online were excited by his playful denial in Pidgin.
“This one don turn area boy already,” Lawal Hussaini tweeted.
