3 Reasons Wilfred Ndidi Is An Ideal Candidate For Super Eagles Captaincy

3 Reasons Wilfred Ndidi Is An Ideal Candidate For Super Eagles Captaincy

Leicester midfield maestro Wilfred Ndidi has grown in leaps and bound in recent years as we have seen in his game-play on the pitch.

Moving to EPL side Leicester City from one of the Belgian topsides RC Genk was more like climbing a ladder for the players as he was already a hit in Belgium.

He’s scored an incredible goal which was adjudged one of the best goals of the season in Belgium as he’s shown why he was snapped up by Leicester City.

All this and many are Wilfred Ndidi’s story as we take a look at why he’s a genuine candidate for Super Eagles captaincy.

His Consistency on the Pitch

The player has got an impressive statistics as is evident for both club and country.

His ever dependence and reliability on the pitch and rightly occupying in the midfield pivot makes him a candidate for responsibility in the future.

We all know that a captain needs consistency in their game to make starting eleven on a consistent (regular) basis and this is what Wilfred has done despite the array of budding talent in Nigeria and Leicester City, to say the least at the moment.

Ndidi Is EPL's Best Tackler

Growing Reputation

Wilfred’s net worth has been on the rise in the last couple of months as he continues to shine for his Leicester City in EPL.

This has seen the player ranked among the highest paid Nigerian player based on financial terms while the player keeps his head down and is not looking back on former achievement with hope for the future.

Such quality and aspiration from the player are what the Super Eagles needs going forward even as we crave for the darling team the Super Eagles to return its glory days.

Man of the Match Contender

Nigeria is obviously blessed with talent in the country with the scope spreading far and near. The Super Eagles side have got a lot of quality going forward on their own.

However, a certain player Wilfred Ndidi makes himself a suitable choice for accolades on the Nigerian shirt.

Despite players like Alex Iwobi, Samuel Kalu and Samuel Chukwueze to name but a few, Ndidi had caught the eye many times to swoop man of the match awards.

This is what Super Eagles are made of even as the team needs quality and class in references to a player who can be exemplary on the pitch for Nigeria Super Eagles like Wilfred Ndidi.

    Very idle reporter. He must have been paid to write this. Who says the position of the captain of the super eagles is vacant at this point, or has Ahmed Musa retired from the super eagles? This is how certain people plant the seed of discord in the team. What a shame!

    • My bro@lucky that is why i hate this obiwulozo he has never post anything dat makes sense,infact csn dnt have any gud journalist, 

  • Don’t mind them. Honestly I don’t know the reason for this write up at this moment? I think choosing a team captain is the responsibility of the coach and the players.

    What a myopic, illogical and irrational thinking from a dullard or ethnic jingoist. The position is not vacant at the moment.
    May be the reporter is from Ndidi’s village.

  • I really don’t want to go hard on this Martins Obiweluozo reporter guy like I did last time. Some felt I went overboard (and maybe I did), but common what is the meaning of this one again? There are many features that make a good piece, and one of them is that you must divorce/separate yourself, your opinion or biases from the article. State verifiable facts and figures, and if there’s a likelihood anything could sound weird to readers, back it up with solid points/proofs.

    The question is what are the criteria for appointing a national football team captain? I have listened to many coaches give their reasons for choosing a specific player as the team captain, and there’s always not so much emphasis on ‘Consistency on the Pitch,’ ‘Growing Reputation,’ and ‘Man of the Match Contender.’ Instead, they’re often harping on experience, influence/charisma on the field, and commitment to the club/team. At least, there’s a current order with Musa at the top, followed by Ekong/Omeruo, then Balogun I think. I don’t even think Ndidi comes before Ighalo. So, all of these people should be skipped to hand Ndidi the arm bound? And to gain what in the end? Team harmony and fluidity of play? LOL.

    Reporting is not a license to stir controversy. No matter the shape or direction of your argument, it should at least carry some weight of logic for a significant majority.

    I think Musa remains our skipper till retirement
    He is SE most cap player and highly influencial on the pitch, so loyal and committed to the team, infact no comparison or argument about SE captainship, you can talk about his assistant, for me his assistant should be trost Ekong.
