Wilfred Ndidi has been urged to leave Leicester City and the Premier League by a disrespectful former Everton striker.
While the city of Leicester doesn’t have the same earning power as the established ‘big six’ clubs, Leicester City punches above its weight due to diligence and spirit. In addition to making a run at said English superclubs a reality by disrupting their monopoly, not once but twice in four years.
Subsequently, another terrific Champions League campaign or two could potentially stabilise the team at the level previously mentioned. The Foxes ownership also has the capacity to spend more if they so wish; whilst the sales and acquisitions of the King Power side actually propelled them towards Europe’s elite standard in financial terms.
With that said, it is surprising that supposedly informed folk and a one-time Premier League player seem to disregard these facts. Even shocking, with respect to those uninformed or ignorant ‘experts’.
Obviously the true Leicester supporters are used to the dismissive nature of other clubs’ ‘fans’ towards the East Midlands outfit. Though the Blue Army knows their team majorly disrupted the entire division, as certain top-end top-flight rivals’ dominance fades.
And Leicester achieved this status without buying premier, eminent players for ridiculous prices. Which other outfits could be accused of doing. A more organic growth.
Former Everton player disrespects Leicester City
Wilfred Ndidi is no doubt one of the keys to the modern success of Leicester City. Again, he wasn’t bought as a star for an exorbitant fee: no, he was made into a borderline superstar with the expertise of the Leicester coaching staff and wonderfully exceptional squad. Ndidi has improved dramatically in the lays 12-16 months.
Therefore for the 23-year-old’s fellow countryman and ex-Everton striker Daniel Amokachi to say “Ndidi is bigger than Leicester City” and should leave the league to join Juventus, is an insult to the city that helped rear and mature the athlete. Along with being preposterously untrue. No player is bigger than the club; the premiership is also the best in the world.
The Foxes aren’t a selling club anymore – some people are going to have to get used to us winning trophies and keeping our stars for at least their lengthy four-five year contracts, too.
