Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi is pleased to learn from Leicester City colleague Jamie Vardy on when to shoot first-time, when to take a touch, when to hit the ball with power and when to use precision.
Vardy, 32, who has been working as Leicester’s unofficial finishing coach is the Premier League’s highest scorer with 17 goals in 18 games and has scored in all but one of his last nine league games.
Ndidi revealed that Vardy is one of the reasons for his brilliant performances this season is because of the tips he has been getting from him.
“He’s not just doing it for himself, he’s doing it for the team, the Eagles midfielder was quoted on the Daily Mail.
“Before the game, he’s always there to tell me how to hit the ball.
“Because he’s a goalscorer, he gives this advice to me and some other players. So he’s just there to guide us. He used to tell me ‘don’t strike!’ but now he tells me ‘don’t strike just pass it.”
The former Genk forward has played 18 league appearances and scored two goals so far this season.
Ndidi sits second in the rankings of players with most tackles this season. He is also the player with most interceptions this season.
