EPL: Why I joined Leicester City – Wilfred Ndidi
Super Eagles star, Wilfred Ndidi has revealed why he joined EPL side, Leicester City.
The midfielder explained that the club is a “one big family”.
“It was the perfect club for me to join because they’re one big happy family,” he told The Sun UK.
While acknowledging that there was pressure joining Leicester because they were the reigning champions, Ndidi, however, stated that it has been exciting.
He said: “When I first moved to Europe I came as a central defender. It was only in Belgium when I was converted into a central midfielder.
“It was difficult because I was taught how to keep it nice and simple. I didn’t train how to make tackles. I just tried to win the ball.
“I didn’t focus on the talk that I was going to be the next Kante. I just concentrated on coming in and doing my thing — to play like ‘Ndidi’. My view was as long as I did that, everything would be OK.
“There was pressure joining Leicester because they were the reigning champions but it was also exciting too.
