Former Liverpool player, Jamie Redknapp has described Super Eagles defensive midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi as an exceptional player following his performance against Arsenal in the Premier League over the weekend.
The Nigeria international was in good form on Saturday when he put up a man-of-the-match display in the middle of the park as the Foxes ran out 2-0 winners against Arsenal.
The 22-year-old completed the most tackles (7) in the encounter, managed a 100 percent passing accuracy in the final third and also made key interceptions (3) and successful take-on (3).
However, the pundit was impressed with the qualities of the Super Eagles midfielder.
“He does a great job. He’s the sort of player that I think Arsenal have been crying out for years,” said, Redknapp.
“He’s 22 years of age, got great pace, good energy, can pass the ball.
“I think about the game earlier in the season when he gave the ball away against Chelsea and I thought ‘I wonder how he’ll react’. He ended up scoring a goal after it.
“For such a young man he plays with so much assurance.”
The former Genk midfielder is part of the Super Eagles team looking to face Benin and Lesotho on Tuesday and Sunday respectively for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.
