The Super Eagles midfielder polled 42 per cent of the votes by the club fans while Vardy was second with 39 per cent.

In third place is Fofana with 12 per cent and Albrighton got seven per cent.

Ndidi put up a brilliant display to contain the forays of both Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane.

He made 19 recoveries against Spurs, the most any player has made in a single Premier League in over a year.

A Vardy penalty and an own goal by Toby Alderwereld secured Brendan Rodgers’ first ever win against Jose Mourinho.

The win took Leicester to second position on 27 points and are four points behind leaders Liverpool.

    Brilliant!amazing player,proud of you as a Nigerian.

    More performances like this will surely take you to that club you rightly deserves big man.

  • Nwakali is better than all SE midfielders….

    • Doctor Koyemi Oderinde 3 years ago

      @UBFE, Now you have seen the light. I trained with Nwakali in Owerri around 2006 and I can tell you categorically that he is far better than Mikel Obi and Alex Iwobi combined. From the way you talk I can see that you have played football before because you have eyes for genuine talent. I played with someone who used your name here as his alias. His name is James Johnson Fineface. Or is it you? One Love brother.

      • What????

        Nwakali is also better than MIKEL OBI???
        This pple would never stop amusing me…..

        “…b4 it was; Nwakali is better than all SE midfielders…”.
        “…now Nwakali is better than MIKEL OBI…”
        Joke of the year….

        One day Nwakali would be better than Okocha….

      • @Doctor Koyemi….

        U trained with Nwakali in 2006?

        How old were u then?

        I think Nwakali should be 7/8 years old then….

      • Dr Koyemi Oderinde, Jon Mikel Obi was a regular starter with Chelsea at the age of 19, something Kelechi has not been able to achieve with lowly Huesca at the age of 22.

        When he is an automatic starter in a top of the table side in Either La Liga or the EPL, then maybe you can try a comparison, but at this time? He couldn’t even match Mikel today in 2020, talk less when he was in his prime

        • JimmyBall 3 years ago

          Was Mikel really 19yrs when he started at Chelsea? Chelsea career started for him 2006 and he played U-20 in 2005 at 18yrs but you and I know at Finland 2003 U-17 Mikel could not have been less than 20years at the least… So by 2005 he would have been somewhere around 22/23years for real. Make we no lie to ourselves! Mikel is. Nothing less than 36/37 years now in reality.

      • Michael Adelami 3 years ago

        Nwakali was 17 years in 2015, so how did you train with him in 2006, 9 years before his u 17 competition.
        Are you saying nwakali is way older than his age? Please clarify

      • MAJOR FLEX 3 years ago

        How old was he then?

  • Nice one we love you

  • Kingston 3 years ago

    I’m really confused… what’s this with nwakali better than Mikel? I don’t understand, abeg make person explain give me.
    anyway, congrats to ndidi. he just returned from injury and he’s already showing class. hopefully big clubs will come for him (though I believe that will happen after his passing and ability to create chances improve). iwobi is inform. ndidi is inform. aribo is inform. ejaria is inform. super eagles midfield is in form!

  • Make siera Leone come again

  • Collins id 3 years ago

    Good to see Ndidi is back, i don’t see why we shouldn’t win the nest afcon,(barring technical errors) especially with the addition of josh onomah to those names mentioned by Kingston, we also hope to have akinola (arsenal u23 star) in the team aswell, bcos only Ndidi is not enough as our DM, if the guy is injured there will always be a problem bcos he is the only DM we can trust. Etebo and Abdulahi are not competent enough in that role, if akinola and Josh are not available then azubuike should come in to be second option to Ndidi. I am saying this bcos we saw how eagles failed to defend their leads without Ndidi in the front of our defenders, though the inclusion of ejiara and olise will boasten our creativity which is good for us, but looking at our last games I don’t think our midfield is actually lacking creativity rather it’s the defensive dominance and the ability to keep possession is the major issue so while we are happy about ejiara and olise Rohr should think about an alternative for Ndidi, Josh unoma, akinola, azubuike if possible the return of onazi, one or two of these names can be good alternatives for Ndidi, meanwhile God bless Naija

    • Kbaba 3 years ago

      Bro forget onazi. Onazi is probably In his 40s at this point. When last did he play for 4 weeks straight without injuries, long and short term problems or a drastic change of club. His best days are gone. My brother let me know that some of Onazi’s child good friends in south africa told him that onazi cut his age by around 9 years. Why do you think he had a bout 3-4 really good seasons at lazio and after that, and his best international contributions during Afcon ’13. He declined in performance since then although people blame the Matuidi tackle but that was to show you that he wasn’t as young as he proposed hence the inability to heal quickly as a young man.

      At this point I agree with you that we need alternative strong DMs and also agree with the names you put forward except onazi.

      We need to realize that not all footballers are truthful about their age and they have to go through different means to make it or get out of their circumstances. That’s why it’s hard for some to retire, even though their body is telling them that it is time. We appreciate their contributions but sometimes we have to be honest and move forward.

      Sofun won,

  • Kingston 3 years ago

    nice one @collins id. but I will prefer frank onyeka as third choice ahead of shehu and the names you mentioned for the DCM role. ndidi, etebo (for dynamism) and onyeka (have similar style to ndidi) accordingly. do not underestimate onyeka for any reason. watch his games at uefa and I bet that you will be impressed. josh onomah is still injured and is even yet to begin his switch (I doubt he has agreed to play for Nigeria yet). there’s also alhassan Ibrahim at Portugal. he’s playing regularly but is yet to make impact even at club side. shehu is good but is not ideal for long term purpose. azubuike is a no go area for me, for many reasons.

    • JimmyBall 3 years ago

      Let Frank Onyeka leave Denmark before anyone takes him serious. He played against Algeria in a recent friendly and was running with power dissipating energy without any meaningful work. Onyeka no be Super Eagle quality yet…

  • Ndidi for SE captain the yeah????

  • Kingston 3 years ago

    @jimmyball let junior ajayi leave Egypt before any one should take him serious. let peter olayinka leave Cyprus before anyone take him serious. let Paul onauchu be dropped, he is not “super eagles material”. let nwakali never be called, he’s obviously not “super eagles material”. The same Onyeka that played in the uefa is not a super eagles material??! that guy has quality in no small way.

    • JimmyBall 3 years ago

      @Kingsgon… I have watched Frank Onyeka. He plays like Anderson Esiti… just crank power no smooth torque. I will even call Jack Ipalibo of Stromgodset, Norway before Frank Onyeka. He played EUFA champ league, Olayinka did not play last year shey? Despite acquitting himself well against the likes of Barcelona, Dortmund and Inter Milan, the likes of you still said he is not good enough for Super Eagles… but because you identify with Frank Onyeka in ethnicity now, you bring hypocrisy while excluding Olayinka in the same breadth.

  • Kingston 3 years ago

    serious @jimmyball, did you just address me a bigot??? that’s low man… even from you. I mentioned nwakali too, yet you skip that. you ignored that I said azubuike should not be called at all in my first post, just to salvage remorse for your argument. whenever the issue of olayinka is brought up, my reservation with him has always been the league he is playing in. is olayinka good? I agree, but let him prove himself at top league. I will admit, his matches in Europa league have been impressive. but if he’s doing that at top stage then he can justifiably display of our forwards.
    even the onyeka was not my first choice for back up role of DCM. onyeka style of play is too similar to ndidi’s. I’ve always been of the opinion that we need a deep-lying playmaker, someone that will imitate pirlo of seria a. besides, onyeka won his team best player of the year, and his team won the league. so give me a break. comparing him to esiti, seriously?
