The Nigerian International has become a key member of Leicester City’s team and one of the best in his position in the league and he gives credit to his coach, Brendan Rogers for his development.

“No disrespect to other managers but kudos to Brendan Rodgers. He has done a lot of work on me. I remember the Chelsea game when (Mason) Mount took the ball from me and scored? That day made me a better player.


“The manager and the staff spoke to me. They made me understand what to do better and made me take it as a habit to do certain things. But he encouraged me to continue to play my game.

“The fact that he trusts and tries to improve the players is one thing. It is very difficult for a manager to come in and then dedicate himself to improving players, getting regular one on one meetings with players to help them make improvements.

“This is professional football, some teams won’t have that time for you to do all that. Everybody just focused on the business, they’re paying you for it and expect you to do the work. But Rodgers is different, very different.”

Wilfred Ndidi joined Leicester City from Genk as a replacement for N’Golo Kante who joined Chelsea after an unlikely season which saw the Foxes winning the Premier League in 2016.

Brendan Rogers team are 3rd on the Premier League table before the season was suspended due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
