Ojigwe: The Area Ndidi Needs To Improve On In His Game

Former Nigeria international Pascal Ojigwe has advised Super Eagles and Leicester City midfield star Wilfred Ndidi on what area in his game he still needs to improve.

Ojigwe, 43, made this known in an interview with his former Eagles teammate Ifeanyi Udeze on his radio programme “Ifeanyi Udeze’s Diary”, on Brila FM.

“I think he should score with his head more especially from set plays because he has the height,” Ojigwe said.

“I don’t see him do that all the time. He is very good in other aspect of his game but I feel he should start using his head more whenever there is a cornerkick.

“And if he starts scoring goals with his level now bug clubs like Manchester United will be out for him because that is where he belongs.”

Born in Aba, Nigeria, after a good season with FC Cologne in the 1999–2000 Bundesliga 2 (German second division) Ojigwe moved to local rival Bayer Leverkusen.

The transfer fee was believed to be about €1.75 million and had been paid to FC Kaiserslautern who only had loaned Ojigwe to Cologne.

Ojigwe who revealed he is into politics now in Abia State, was part of the Leverkusen side that finished runner-up in the Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and Champions League all in the 2001/2002 season.

Other German clubs he played for are Borussia Mönchengladbach and 1860 Munich.

During his time in the Nigeria Professional Football League, he played for Enyimba of Aba.

He rose to prominence as part of the Golden Eaglets side that won the Japan 1993 FIFA U-17 World Cup.

Also, he was in the Eagles squad that finished third at the Mali 2002 Africa Cup of Nations.

However, he was dropped from the team to the Korea/Japan 2002 FIFA World Cup.
