EPL TOP 4: NDIDI RUES LEICESTER CHAMPIONS LEAGUE MISS

By Olayinka Elebute

Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi is disappointed that his club Leicester City failed to qualify for the European Champions League championship by losing to Manchester United on the final day.

The Leicester City boys played out their hearts at the King Power Stadium but could only settle for the Europa League ticket after spending much of the campaign in the top-four places.

Ndidi was superb in his 32nd league game of the season, but Brendan Rodgers’ men still fell to a final day 2-0 defeat to the Red Devils.

That loss sees the Foxes finish fifth in the Premier League, their second-best finish in the competition, ending the season on 62 points from 38 games, having won 18 matches during that time.

After taking a few days to take stock of the entire season, Ndidi confessed that despite the disappointment, they had a fantastic year. “We are a bit disappointed to finish 5th,” the Super Eagles star wrote on Twitter.

“But overall. It was a great season! “I want to, first of all, thank our fans for being with us even when the stadiums were empty due to the pandemic, it was indeed a season to learn from and grow into next season thanks for support.”

Ndidi scored two goals and provided an assist during a campaign in which he also finished as the league’s joint-top tackler.
