Leicester City fans want new defender, unhappy with Ndidi’s new position

Fans of English Premier League side, Leicester City have decried the impact of Nigerian defender, Wilfred Ndidi in his make-shift role in heart of the defense.

Originally a defensive midfielder, Ndidi has covered the Foxes in central defense for the last two games following the suspension of Jonny Evans.

The fans have also urged the management of the team to get an experienced defender.

Ndidi has been deployed as a centre back in Leicester’s opening Premier League games, but the club supporters want him back in his preferred role.

Although Ndidi played as a defender in the early parts of his career, he gained popularity as a defensive midfielder, Soccernet.ng said.

The former Genk star is yet to put a foot wrong in the two games he has played as a centre back, but fans want him back in the midfield, where he’s more effective.
