Nigerian midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi had a mixed match during Sunday’s Premier League game between his Leciester City side and Chelsea. He was at fault for dwelling on the ball leading to Chelsea’s Mason Mount dispossessing him and scoring. However, he made up for it in the second half by scoring a headed goal from a corner thus helping Leicester draw the game.
In a recent segment with Sky Sports we get an insight into Ndidi’s life in Leicester. He speaks on maturing this summer after taking a role of increased prominence with the Eagles in the build up to their 3rd place finish at this summer’s African Cup of Nations, his role in a Leicester side tipped for greatness alongside the likes of James Maddison and Youri Tielemans and his experience under manager, Brendan Rodgers. He also reflected on combining football with a business degree at Leicester’s De Montfort University, seeking anonymity and his bid to use the degree to serve the greater good of football upon retirement from the beautiful game.
