Ndidi tipped to surpass N’Golo Kante

Nigerian international and Leicester City midfielder Winifred Ndidi has been tipped to surpass the exploit of N’Golo Kante for the foxes. The 21 year old former Genk ace has become a major talking point following his five star performance on Monday as embattled defending champions Leicester who appear to have forgotten how to win matches, grabbed their first victory this year hitting Liverpool 3-1.

Most analyst say Ndidi may be some way behind Kante in terms of development and maturity, but he has the talent, the temperament and the willingness to learn and improve and his super performance on Monday night did not go unnoticed. He won 11 of his 14 tackles, a feat exceeding the entire Liverpool defence combined and bettered only by Kante, the man he replaced and with whom he has been compared. Kante won three more against the same opposition earlier in the season.

Ndidi also made five out of five clearances from his penalty area, added another three out of three headed clearances and won three of six aerial duels in a robust, full-bodied performance. For all of that, he was only penalised for one foul. What the numbers did not however say according to them is the devastating effect his midfield command played in disrupting Liverpool’s game to facilitate Leicester’s victory.

Some analysts noted at the end of the Monday showdown that “Ndidi only turned 20 last December, but his understanding, interpretation and execution of his role in midfield is one that puts him a position to be among the best in the world within a few years”

His form no doubt is sure to be a plus for Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr who is faced with battles against Cameroon and Algerian in the World Cup qualifiers.
