Brendan Rodgers club side managed to win only one of the six matches Ndidi missed when he was injured showing how pivotal he is to the club’s style of play and now British television sports channel Sky Sports has unveiled a list of the most valuable player for every Premier League club in the 2019-2020 season listing Ndidi as Leicester City’s MVP.
Sky Sports explaining Ndidi’s selection wrote:-
“Leicester lead the way for counterattacks this season, a hallmark of their game in recent years.
“The bedrock of their midfield and the key man in launching so many fast breaks is Wilfred Ndidi.
“The Nigerian is a master of the art of the turnover, regularly winning possession and springing attacks. His 4.4 tackles per 90 minutes is the highest in the Premier League this season and significantly higher than the next-best central midfielder, Oriol Romeu on 3.2.
“Ndidi’s value was further demonstrated by his recent injury absence – a five-game run that saw the previously high-flying Foxes take only two points from a possible 15.”
