Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi has gained another round of sweet words from the club’s manager, Claude Puel, who believes the Super Eagles star has great potentials to become a world class player.
Puel commended what he called impressive work rate from Ndidi and added that the former Racing Genk of Belgium player has improved in his ball holding abilities.
The French gaffer’s comments come amidst widespread rave reviews trailing Ndidi, who was a replacement for battling midfielder, N’Golo Kante, who moved to Chelsea, just a season after helping The Foxes win the Premier League title.
Since his arrival, 21-year-old Ndidi has become a vital player for The Foxes and won the club’s young player of the year award in his maiden campaign at King Power Stadium.
Ndidi has cemented his place in the Super Eagles squad after earning his first cap in 2015 in a friendly against Congo DR. He has played 14 times with no goals yet.
He is also rated the11th most valuable U21 player by the CIES Football Observatory, above the likes of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Marco Asensio and Youri Tielemans; but Puel believes the youngster has more laurels coming his way.
The coach declared: “He puts in some fantastic work on the pitch. I think also he improves with the ball and plays with quality. I think he can make further progress in this area. He has great potential for the future.”
