Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has highlighted the Importance of Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi in his team.
Ndidi sits on top of the premier league ranking for interceptions, tackle won and recovery and believes the 23 year old is one of the most important figure in his sqaud.
Against Norwich, Ndidi made the most tackles and the most interceptions. He recovered possession of the ball more times than anyone else on the pitch and he rarely lost it.
Stars also revealed that 19 of Ndidi’s tackles have come in the opposition half, which helped to give confidence to forward players.
With the attacker getting all the praises, Rodgers, however, understands the player’s importance.
“He is an incredible player,” he said recently.
“The offensive players get the credit but he does the dirty work. He has this brain for the game, where he can smell danger and always finds himself there.
“When you play a pressing game you need someone like Wilf. He can cover the ground so fast, he can press up to the ball, he can cover in. Tactically he is improving and playing better. He is playing in a specific position we haven’t played before where he can run and he has got a clear role to sit and protect and be that link player.
“His game is simple. He just needs to serve the players in front of him and be an option to play off the center-halves and full-backs and provide continuity in the game.
“He is always smiling too.” He said.
