Former Nigeria boss Sunday Oliseh is surprised Wilfred Ndidi is not playing at a higher level than Leicester City.
Ndidi has been a key component in Brendan Rodgers’ midfield with the Foxes currently sitting third in the Premier League.
The Nigeria international has had his injury problems of late, but in his 21 league appearances, few have been more consistent in the City side.
According to WhoScored, only Ricardo Pereira has performed at a higher level across the season.
Though a former manager of Ndidi’s, Oliseh can’t believe the holding midfielder is still at the King Power Stadium.
Speaking to Brila.Net, the former Nigeria boss said: “The point is that in the past three or four years, maybe five, he’s been the best midfielder we have, and he’s not just been the best we needed to run with, he’s been the best we have.
“When you see him doing what he’s doing in a club that is average, with all due respect, like Leicester, imagine what Ndidi will do if he was playing at Manchester City.
“He is a man that isn’t the tallest like me, but look at the heart. He has a big heart.”
Ndidi is under contract at the King Power Stadium until 2024 having penned an extension last year.
