Odion Ighalo has told SCORENigeria that Wilfred Ndidi has not been given his due credit in the Premier League despite his exploits with Leicester City in the past two years.
At the weekend, Ndidi was again outstanding as Leicester City recorded their biggest win in the league with a 5-0 pounding of Newcastle United.
“Ndidi has been doing great things in the Premier League, but he has not enjoyed the credit he deserves,” said Ighalo, who played in the Premier League with Watford before he left for the big money in China.
“He works very hard for his team and he has been consistent.
“He is one player with a heart of a lion.
“If he were English, they would have been praising him to high heavens.”
The 22-year-old Ndidi has been ranked as the best tackler in the Premier League season after season.
The defensive midfielder has so far scored six goals in 94 Premier League appearances for Leicester City since he moved to England in January 2017 from Belgian club Genk.
