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."
