Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers has harped on the importance of Nigeria Intl Wilfred Ndidi to his side’s pressing style of football.
Rodgers was speaking at the post match presser of the foxes 2-0 win over Crystal Palace as Leicester stays third on the premier league log.
“When you play a pressing game, you need someone like Wilf. His passing is good too, he’s always smiling.”
“He [Ndidi] is an incredible player. The offensive players get the credit but he does the dirty work,” Rodgers told a post-match press conference.
Ndidi has been called up for Nigeria’s 2021 AFCON Qualifier against Benin Republic and Lesotho this November.
