Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho deservedly hugged all the limelight after a fantastic substitute performance in Leicester City’s comeback win over Everton but another Super Eagles star is finally getting the plaudits his display equally merited.
Leicester City hard-tackling midfielder Wilfred Ndidi delivered another dominant performance to help Brendan Rodgers side curb the attacking intentions of the Toffees as the home side claimed a nail-biting 2-1 win.
Compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho inspired the victory providing the assist for the equalizer before netting a late, late winner. However, Ndidi’s efforts have also been observed and noted to be worthy of praise.
‘What you do without the ball is nearly as important as what you do when you’ve got the ball. It’s not going in ones and twos, it’s going in as a unit.
“Wilfred Ndidi is a brilliant player and we saw that again on Sunday.
“He’s one of the top tacklers in the whole league and he’s a really important figure for Leicester this season.”
Wilfred Ndidi has featured in 13 of Leicester City’s 14 league matches, with the Foxes boasting the best defensive record in the English top flight so far this term.
