Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed the impact of Wilfred Ndidi at the club this season, likening the Super Eagles midfield trojan to a soldier on the field of play, reports Completesports.com.
The Nigeria international has been one of the key performers for the Foxes this season, contributing two goals in 14 Premier League appearances amid a consistent all-round showing.
Ndidi was particularly exceptional in Sunday’s hard-fought 2-1win against Everton in which his compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho shone with a goal assist and a late winner.
“He’s an incredible player. We have lots of artists and he’s the soldier,” Rodgers told a news conference of Ndidi ahead of Leicester City’s Premier League clash against Watford on Wednesday.
“He provides the platform for the attacking players. Every top team needs a player like that. He’s been phenomenal in the time I’ve been here.”
