Leicester City duo Ahmed Musa and Wilfred Ndidi saw the worst with the dethroned English Premier League champions this season as the Foxes battled their way from the brink of relegation to a safe berth in the middle of the table.
Both players had parallel experiences this season, Musa joining in the Summer on an initial club transfer record.
But has since become a fringe player with an uncertain future at the King Power Stadium.
On the other hand, Wilfred Ndidi joined in January as a necessary measure to plug an apparent leakage in the heart of the midfield.
The 20-year-old did not disappoint, and his contributions have not gone unnoticed.
Before Tuesday’s announcement of Ndidi’s emergence as Leicester City’s Young player of the year award, the midfielder alongside Ahmed Musa made a call to a Braunstone Community Primary School, in Leicester on community service.

The school was vandalized in December last year, as result the pupils couldn’t go to school.
But, with school activities picking up, the kids also had a rare chance to meet their local role models; Ndidi and Musa.
Speaking with the club’s official TV, the Midfielder said:
“When I heard about what happened, I was sad. But, I’m happy the kids are happy to see us. They were happy and seeing the smiles on their faces gives me joy.”
‘As role models, It’s also very important for the kids because most of them look up to us; and the guys, I’m just happy.’
The pair chatted with the kids and took pictures with them, signed autographs and also handed out signed Leicester City home jerseys.
