Leicester Is Wrong To Consider Selling Nigerian Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi To Man-United Due To Injury
Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is a highly sought after player across Europe right now. Signed from Belgian club Genk in 2017 by Leicester City, the defensive midfielder has shown his huge talent with assured performances and beautiful long-range strikes. Although the athletic and combative midfielder is currently recuperating from an injury that prevented him from representing his nation this international break, this hasn't prevented teams from showing an interest in his services.
While soccer at its best can indeed be a beautiful game, it takes extra efforts from those who administer the round leather game to foster the much-needed camaraderie in the team.

Despite the Super Eagles fine form and recent results, the presence of Kuwait SC captain John Obi Mikel, who is capable of leading and commanding the team, might be necessary. The Chelsea legend retired from the squad in 2019, but unfortunately Nigeria is in need for a creative leader on the pitch to drive the team forward with his instructions and game of play.

Leicester City are gifted with a lot of talented players and that is why most of the time their star players don't play together with each other due to limited slots in the team. That is why though they are both talented, unfortunately Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy do not often play together in the same game because the coach, Brendan Rodgers mostly plays one of them and benches the other one, though both of them are the recognized strikers in the team at the moment.
