What Ex-Eagles Star Told Ndidi About Joining Bigger Club

What Ex-Eagles Star Told Ndidi About Joining Bigger Club

Former Nigerian midfielder, Seyi Olofinjana has advised Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi not to be carried away by comments that he should leave Leicester City for a better club in Europe.

Ndidi, who has established himself as the Foxes’ midfield trojan since joining the team in 2017, has been on the radar of top European sides like Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain in recent years.

In a chat with Punch, Olifinjana stated that Ndidi must not be in a hurry to leave the club but take his time to decide his future.

“For Ndidi at the moment, and for his class, whatever club appreciates what he brings to the table, that will be able to help him get to the next stage of his career, will be where I advise he goes,” Olofinjana said.

“But if that’s not happening, I think he’s in a very good club. Leicester are a force to reckon with right now in arguably the best league in the world. They finished fifth last season, they are third as we speak, it doesn’t get better than that.

“He is playing week-in-week-out, where else should he go? Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for.”

    This one na ogbonge advice ooo. I think it will be tough to find a better situation elsewhere than what Ndidi has going for him at Leicester. Unless it is an offer he can’t refuse (Marlon Brando), Ndidi is best advised to sit tight and continue his development with the Foxes.

    Hmmmm… @daniel, Ndidi should move to a better club. Leicester is 3rd on the log and doing well. He is assured of starting whenever fit… It’s that consistency that has refined his game and how he handles his role. There are uncertainties that could spring up atimes in foorltball. Once a coach who does not see you good and high walks through the door… You could get benched and your confidence finally lost. A club with a profile better than Leicester is welcomed but only if he will be playing regular minutes… His next career decision will be interesting though. But sometimes consolidation is never bad… My take!

  • @jimmyball your post always make sense.you are one of us in this forum keep it up.

    @Stan… Salute to you my brother. Imagine what Maurizio Sarri almost did to Ngolo Kante’s game and confidence because of Jorginho acquisition. Players are at the mercy of coaches who are in-charge at a particular time. One love…

    Should Leicester finish in the top four I would advise he play another season.
    Under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers Leicester fc will improve and hopefully have a decent champions league participation.
    And if the trend of finishing top four carrys on with this team,I do not see the need of looking for employment elsewhere.

    Leicester is a good club, but does not pay as well as the traditional big clubs. There are several players who can’t even get on the bench of big clubs and earn over £100k per week. Ndidi will double his wages if he moves to Man U or PSG. Football is a short career and Ndidi should be looking to test himself at one of the big clubs, and make good money.

    Besides what happens if he has a long term injury or looses form? He’ll be stuck in Leicester warning £70k per week, while guy with less abilities are cleaning out in big clubs.
