Super Eagles’ midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi believes his time at Leicester City has been amazing because the club has offered him the right atmosphere to develop and grow into one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Eagles’ star signed a new improved contract with the Foxes, extending his stay till 2024 and he told the club’s website that personal records mean little to him as he wants the team to excel in all fronts.
“I’m so happy and comfortable with everyone- the coaches, the players, the staff and the people working here. I’m very happy because everyone is friendly. As well as playing football, you can also learn a lifestyle outside of football. I’m happy I’m growing here and I’m really looking forward to the future.
“For me, I will say it’s not just me, it’s the players. A man cannot make a team; I think the team makes a player. I think because of my teammates, everyone is pushing and everyone is encouraging each other,” Ndidi said.
Ndidi’s was one of Leicester City’s standout performers last term, completing a stunning 138 tackles in England’s top flight during his first full season as a Fox. He added further that qualifying for Europe remains his top priority.
“The ultimate aim is to help City mount another European challenge in the near future but I always take things as they come and take it one step at a time. I don’t like thinking about what will happen in the future. I would say it starts from now and I just want us to start winning games and progressing to get as many points as we can in every season,” Ndidi concluded.
