Leicester City coach, Claude Puel said midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi has been a priceless asset in the club’s campaign for the season and therefore the award as Leicester City best player was well deserved.
Ndidi joined Leicester City last January and has never been on the bench all through this season.
The 21 year old has won more tackles than any other player in Europe’s top five divisions.
“Since the beginning of the season, Wilfred is the most consistent player because he plays well, he recovers a lot of balls and he deserves to be the best,” Puel stated in an interview with Leicester Mercury.
“He’s improved a lot; he continues to work with good spirit in the training sessions, and is always correct.
“He is a valuable player for us because we don’t have a lot of players with the same attributes. He can recovered a lot of balls, he is strong in the duels and now, when he plays simple with quality, he can give a good start in our play,” Puel added.
Ndidi received acclaim with his brilliant performances in the clash against relegated bound west brom that saw Leicester deepen the misery of the baggies by trashing them 4-1.
