Leicester Boss Rodgers Hails Irreplaceable Ndidi

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has nothing but kind words for Nigeria midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, reports Completesports.com.

Ndidi recently returned to action for the Foxes after undergoing surgery for an injury picked up in a 4-2 home win against Burnley in September.

Rodgers heaped plaudits on the midfielder, who is one key stars at the King Power Stadium.

“He (Ndidi) covers the ground. In terms of counter pressing, he’s so strong. He can get up to the ball so fast. If a team breaks through our midfield line, he can normally get back in and recover,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.

“Of course, on set pieces, he’s very dominant. You can see, bringing him into the team, the profile he gives you in your box when you’re defending.

“From a defensive perspective, he’s irreplaceable with what he gives you, in terms of energy and desire to get the ball back. Just his personality in the game is so great for us.

“It’s great to have him back. We’re obviously trying to manage his time coming back in there, but he’s a colossal player.”
