Leicester 1-1 Stoke: Ndidi & Iheanacho held at home - FCNaija

Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh believes Wilfred Ndidi is a world class player, following the midfielder’s impressive display for Leicester in their FA Cup quarterfinal loss to Chelsea on Sunday.

Oliseh was responding to a tweet by BBC’s Sports reporter/presenter John Bennett, who also hailed Ndidi following his impressive performance for Leicester in their 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday.

Reacting to Ndidi’s display, Bennett wrote on Twitter: “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.”

Replying to Bennett, Oliseh wrote: “I really believe Wilfried Ndidi is world class! hugely talented and Lovely player.”

Oliseh played the central midfield role in the 1990s for the Super Eagles, the same position Ndidi is excelling in for the team currently.
