The Super Eagles midfielder delivered a classy, composed display yet again in Leicester City’s fantastic 2-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday, with a former Nigeria international and Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, applauding the midfield enforcer for representing Nigeria well.
Oliseh, a member of the Atlanta 96 gold medal winning squad, knows an established talent when he sees one and the former Juventus star did not mince words when appraising the performance of Wilfred Ndidi after the Arsenal game.
The 22-year-old has been a key member of a Foxes side challenging at the top of the Premier League table. Ndidi was once again in brilliant form against Arsenal, notching in the game a 100% final third pass accuracy, 90% pass accuracy, most tackles won on the pitch and 5 ball recoveries, as Brendan Rodgers men picked another valuable three points against a direct top four rival.
Sunday Oliseh, a midfield general himself back in his playing days, was so stunned by this top level performance from his compatriot that he went on social media site, Twitter, to share his thoughts.
“What a player! Congrats Wilfred Ndidi, really keeping the Naija flag flying high,” Oliseh tweeted.
