Former Super Eagles player and coach Sunday Oliseh has praised Eagles’ midfielder Wilfred Ndidi following his impressive performance against English champions Chelsea in the quarter final of the FA cup on Sunday.
The former Juventus midfielder played in the same position as Wilfred Ndidi in his playing days and acknowledged him as a perfect player to play in that position for Nigeria.
BBC sports presenter john Bennet reacting to Ndidi’s display on Sunday via his twitter handle @JohnBennetteBBC wrote
“Wilfried Ndidi is such a talented player. Wins the ball back with ease.
“Huge potential; only 21 and only been playing in that position for about 3 years. Will keep getting better.”
Responding to Bennett, Oliseh who coached Ndidi while he was the head coach of the Super Eagles, wrote: “I really believe Wilfried Ndidi is world class! Hugely talented and Lovely player.”
Ndidi joined Leicester city from Genk in 2017 winter transfer and since then he has been hailed worldwide for his distinctive display.
