Ex international, Henry Makinwa has revealed that in-form Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi should be saddled with the responsibility of the Super Eagles midfield ahead of Mikel Obi.
Makinwa was impressed with the splendid display of Ndidi in the heart of the Super Eagles midfield in the team’s 1-1 draw against the Teranga Lions of Senegal at the Hive Stadium on Wednesday.
The Teranga Lions took the lead in the 54th minute through Moussa Sow before Kelechi Iheanacho equalized for Nigeria in the 83rd minute through a penalty.
“John Obi Mikel should allow Wilfred Ndidi to take charge for now. He is simply better off seeing his performance for his club and with the country,” Makinwa told Goal.
“For our forthcoming qualifiers, they must work smarter and pick the best lads playing in their clubs regularly.
“Nigeria can’t afford to lose out on major international tournaments for now. All players must be on their toes.”
