Leicester City Boss Brendan Rodgers has hailed Wilfred Ndidi and his teammates after their record equaling performance against Southampton in a Premier league match on Friday.
Ndidi and his teammates arrived at the Saint Mary as one of the most inform team in the division and it won’t take them so long before making their intentions known.
Leicester raced into 5-0 lead at halftime, before scoring other four goals in the second 45 minutes, with Ndidi playing the entire duration of the game.
After the game, the Foxes manager, Rodgers said he’s satisfied with work of his team and believed the performance at Saint Mary will be difficult to match later in the course of the season.
“I’m very pleased to see our work rate, we scored some great goals and we were very hungry tonight. It was horrible weather but our focus was outstanding. I’m very pleased how we defended, and we were ruthless. I’m very proud to stand and be the manager of that team.”
“We wanted to get the ball back quickly and attack again. A mark of the good sides is you don’t let up. We wanted to show we’re a good side and we certainly did that in the second half.”
“We were ruthlessly simple in our game. When you’re so many goals up you can easily slow but we kept focused. We want to be a top team and to be a top team you must be clinical.”
“It was a very good team performance and we’re pleased to keep a clean sheet. It’s good for our goals for but the clean sheet is equally important.”
Ndidi has now played nine of Leicester’s ten premier league matches this season as they recorded the biggest ever victory by an away side in an English top-flight league match in the 131-year history of the Football League.
