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.
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.
