“Bigger than Leicester City” Ndidi urged to leave

May 12, 2020

The 23-year-old has been linked with several top European clubs and the former Super Eagles star wants him to seize his chance

Former Everton striker Daniel Amokachi has advised Wilfred Ndidi to leave Leicester City for Juventus, insisting he is a bigger draw than the Premier League club.

The Nigeria international has been a consistent performer for the King Power Stadium outfit since joining the side from Genk in 2017.

Ndidi has featured in 111 Premier League games in his three-year stay with the Foxes so far, delivering solid defensive performances throughout.

The 23-year-old, who is regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in the English top-flight, has featured in 29 games this season before the outbreak of coronavirus.

His fine form has continued to generate interest from a number of European clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United and lately Juventus.

 Amokachi, who featured for the Toffees between 1994-1996, wants the midfielder to take the opportunities that come his way.

“I’ve been insisting for a while now that Ndidi is bigger than Leicester City,” Amokachi told Brila FM.

 “My apologies to the fans of the club, but that is the reality we live in now and it will be a great move for him.

“He’ll have the chance to play with Blaise Matuidi and could learn a lot from the World Cup winner. Imagine also that he’ll get to play as teammates with Cristiano Ronaldo.

“So, it’ll a big move if it happens and I don’t see it any other way.”

Last month, former international Joseph Dosu also took a similar position, urging the midfielder to join Arsenal or any other top European club to boost his career.

“Ndidi is a workaholic player. He has been exceptional and has been playing very well since he signed for Leicester City,” he told Goal.

“If he moves to Arsenal it will be good and I have no doubt he will do so well there. If they want him it will really be good for his career.
