Ndidi: Leicester City  Desperate To Win More Trophies After FA Cup Success

Wilfred Ndidi insists Leicester City want to win more trophies after their FA Cup success last season, reports Completesports.com.

The Foxes claimed the trophy for the first time after hard-fought 1-0 win against Chelsea in the final at the Wembley Stadium.

“It has been tough and it has been really good,” he told LCFC TV.

“After the break, we need the pre-season. We are used to it, so it is normal for us but I have really missed playing games.

“It is just one month or so, so being back and starting training with the lads, just running and playing football, it feels refreshing. It is really nice.

“It has been great because being away from these lads for over a month, coming back to see them with great smiles and everyone is happy, it is really good.

“Seeing everyone happy and ready to go, it is really good, as a team and as a family. I look forward to what is coming ahead. In pre-season, we take it slowly.

“We don’t rush into playing games. It’s training in order to play the games, to get the muscles going and the cobwebs out. It’s just something we’re planning. Slowly, slowly, we’ll be ready for the games.”

Many of City’s players experienced glory for the first time in their Leicester journeys last term as Brendan Rodgers’ men won the FA Cup and Ndidi says the squad are fully aware of what went well and what didn’t last season.

The 24-year-old believes that will be a motivating factor this year. “Now we’re just putting in the work,” he added

. “We’re beginning to get our fitness and trying to look ahead to the games. We’ve always known [Rodgers’] philosophy and everything.

“We know our targets. We, as players, we know what we want as a group. We know what we want to achieve and I think it’s something that we all look forward to.

“I’m really proud of the group with what we achieved last season. It was a really great feeling. Some of the players weren’t here when Leicester won the league, which was a great, great feeling, and the players who weren’t here then, we have a feeling of actually winning something.

“It’s an incredible feeling and it’s something we want to push and look forward to having that feeling again. It’s really great. It’s something we push for and we’ll see what comes out of this season.”

    Ndidi has outgrown Leicester city…I don’t know why Ndidi has not gotten a big move….honestly he’s good enough to play for bigger teams

      If he was English he would be at either Chelsea, Man U or Man City. He is African that’s why…

      I suspect that Ndidi continuous stay in Leicester may be due to his academic commitment at De Montfort University (DMU), Leicester. In 2019, Ndidi started a degree program in business and management at the De Montfort University (DMU), Leicester. I believe if he successfully earns this degree while continuing in Leicester FC, it will be well worth the effort. With age still on his side, he can still make that big move in a couple of years.
      Sheyi Olofinjana who also combined academics and football career did not play for the biggest of clubs, but is today reaping the fruits of such effort in his current career trajectory after his playing days.
