Leicester City Playmaker, James Maddison is full of praise for his teammate, Wilfried Ndidi, as he rates him high above every player in England who plays in the holding midfield position.
The Nigeria has been consistent so far under Brendan Rodgers, as the Former EPL Champions are second on the league standings this season, with just 2 loss and 2 draws.
“I think he’s the best in the Premier League at tackling and winning the ball back, bar none,” Maddison said.
“I know [N’Golo] Kante is a brilliant player and there are players like that. But actually winning the ball back and taking the ball off the opposition, I don’t think there is anyone better than Wilfred”.
“Sometimes you get a player like that and what he does doesn’t get on the back page of the papers, doesn’t get talked about on Match of the Day”.
“He’s fantastic at what he does and he lets players like me and Youri Tielemans do our thing higher up the pitch because we know we’ve got that solidity behind us.”
