Ranieri Pleased With Ndidi Despite Chelsea Defeat

Coach of Leicester City Claudio Ranieri has praised the performance of Nigeria defender cum midfielder Wilfred Ndidi for his performance despite their 0-3 loss to Chelsea.

Ndidi was handed his Premier League debut by the manager who signed him for £15 million from Belgian side Genk, after introducing him to English football in the FA Cup tie against Everton.

The Nigerian lasted the entire duration of the game but couldn’t stop his side from suffering a devastating loss to the league leaders Chelsea.

”Am happy with Ndidi, he showed us his other side today, playing in midfield and later in central defence. He did well in both areas”, Ranieri told Premier League TV.

”He (Ndidi) did well but not very well just like everybody didn’t play to their potential against Chelsea. We failed to take control of the game and we were punished”.
