Leicester City coach, Claude Puel said midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi has been a major factor in the club’s campaign for the season and therefore deserves to be named Leicester City best player.
Ndidi, 21, joined Leicester City last January and has featured in all its English Premier League games so far this season and has won more tackles than any other player in Europe’s top five divisions.
“Since the beginning of the season, Wilfred is the most consistent player because he plays well, he recovers a lot of balls and he deserves to be the best,” Puel stated in an interview with Leicester Mercury.
“He’s improved a lot; he continues to work with good spirit in the training sessions, and is always correct.
“He is a valuable player for us because we don’t have a lot of players with the same attributes. He can recovered a lot of balls, he is strong in the duels and now, when he plays simple with quality, he can give a good start in our play,” Puel added.
Ndidi was rated high as Leicester beat West Brom 4-1 yesterday. He was excellent with his combative display, and also effective with the ball.
Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy were the stars of the show as Leicester City came from behind to hammer home another nail in the coffin for West Brom.
The relegation-threatened Baggies took the lead through Salomon Rondon, but Mahrez teed up Vardy for the equaliser before Mahrez put them in front in the second half.
