Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers has praised his Nigerian midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi for doing his side’s dirty work.

Leicester humiliated Southampton for the biggest ever away win in the Premier League and equalled Manchester United’s 9-0 record victory over Ipswich in 1995.

 

Ndidi was instrumental in attaining that record for his team as he played a key role in the match against the Saints and Rodgers has reserved praise for the Nigerian.

 

“He is an incredible player. The offensive players get the credit but he does the dirty work,” said Rodgers.

 

“He has the brain for the game, where he can smell danger and always finds himself there . The timing of his challenge is very good and he’s up there with the top players at winning the ball back.

 

“When you play a pressing game you need someone like Wolf. His passing his good too, he’s always smiling.”

 

The Foxes are up against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday and the 22-year-old will be expected to get the job done once again.
