Pep Guardiola has spoken about the quality of Leicester City’s midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, admitting his aggression and hunger to recover the ball stands him above the rest.
The former Genk man has been a revelation since joining Leicester in a deal worth £17m in 2017 and cementing his status in the Foxes’ first team.
Nigeria international Ndidi won 131 aerial battles, 144 tackles and 324 recoveries more than any midfielder in the league last season.
“Name an aggressive marker always hungry to win the ball like he does and I’ll wait, “Pep said in a video uploaded by Ndidi on his Instagram status page.
The 22-year-old missed the Foxes’ Premier League win away at Sheffield United last Saturday and their second-round Carabao Cup clash against Newcastle United on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury.
He is expected to be back for Saturday’s clash against Bournemouth according to his coach Brendan Rodgers.
