PIC: Ruud van Nistelrooy issues classy good luck message to Jamie Vardy ahead of huge weekend

Jamie Vardy could carry on putting smiles on Fantasy Football managers' faces this week.

The Leicester striker can equal the record of scoring in 10 consecutive Premier League games when he comes up against Newcastle on Saturday afternoon.

Vardy has found the net in his previous nine outings and will come level with Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of 10 successive games with a goal if he manages to beat Rob Elliot this weekend.

But Manchester United legend van Nistelrooy, who set the record in 2003 against Newcastle, is not wishing for Vardy to come unstuck so that his record can be kept intact.

Rather, the Dutchman has offered up a classy good luck message to Vardy and has admirably claimed that "records are there to be broken."
