Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed Wilfred Ndidi as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, reports Completesports.com.
Ndidi was named man of the match in Leicester City’s 3-1 home win against Liverpool at the King Power Stadium last Saturday .
The Nigeria international set up Harvey Barnes for the Foxes’ third goal of the game.
The former Genk star also created a new season record with the most ball recoveries (19) in the encounter.
“All the stats show you what a difference he makes for us,” Rodgers said.
“At the highest level you need players who can recover the ball, especially when you have talented players ahead and he is one of the best in the Premier League at that. He was colossal.”
He has scored one goal in 12 league appearances for the Foxes this season.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
