Samir Nasri accuses Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy of cheating
Sevilla midfielder Samir Nasri has accused Jamie Vardy of cheating following his red card in Leicester's Champions League victory.
Nasri was dismissed for a second yellow card in Sevilla's 2-0 last-16 second-leg defeat, as Leicester City reached the quarter-finals on a 3-2aggregate.
Nasri and Vardy clashed in the second half and were booked for butting heads.
But the on-loan Manchester City star believes Vardy's response convinced referee Daniele Orsato to take action.
"For me he's a cheat because if he was a foreign player you, the English press, would be saying he's a cheat," he said.
"They were winning 2-0, play the game like a man. You are not better than us but you are winning 2-0 and will qualify, just play the game."
But England striker Vardy refuted Nasri's allegation, saying: "I'm not a cheat and I never have been. That's all I've got to say on the matter."
