Former Super Eagles captain Sunday Oliseh has described Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi as a world class player, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Oliseh stated this while responding to a tweet by BBC’s Sports reporter/ presenter John Bennett, who also hailed Ndidi following his impressive performance for Leicester in their 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday.
Reacting to Ndidi’s display, Bennett wrote on Twitter: “Wilfried Ndidi is such a talented player. Wins the ball back with ease.
“Huge potential; only 21 and only been playing in that position for about 3 years. Will keep getting better.”
Replying to Bennett, Oliseh who coached Ndidi while he (Oliseh) was the head coach of the Super Eagles, wrote: “I really believe Wilfried Ndidi is world class! hugely talented and Lovely player.”
Oliseh played the central midfield role in the 1990s for the Super Eagles, the same position Ndidi is excelling in for the team currently.
Ndidi is expected to join up with his Super Eagles teammates on Monday for their two international friendlies against Poland in Warsaw and Serbia in London on March 23 and 27 respectively.
