Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers has described Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi as a soldier ahead of Premier League clash against Watford on Wednesday night.

The 22-year-old Nigeria international has arguably been the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League this season, has improved massively over the last two years as the Foxes are pushing Liverpool for the title and currently boast a six-game winning streak in the league.

Rodgers, however, stressed, in a news conference ahead of his side Premier League clash against Watford on Wednesday, the relevance of Ndidi to his team.

"He’s an incredible player. We have lots of artists and he’s the soldier,”

"He provides the platform for the attacking players. Every top team needs a player like that. He’s been phenomenal in the time I’ve been here.”

Super Eagles midfielder will hope to put in an exceptional display when his side face Watford in the English Premier League on Wednesday at King Power Stadium.
