Super Eagles star enrols in UK university, gives reasons


Super Eagles and Leicester City combative midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, has revealed that in his spare time away from football, he is studying a business degree at De Montfort University, Leicester.

According to Skysports, the 22-year-old said he wants to use his business degree to improve facilities for young footballers in Nigeria once he is done playing active football.

Ndidi also revealed that he has tried to keep his degree study on a low profile by wearing a hoodie when on campus and even from his teammates.

“I try to keep a low profile, no one knows me here except for a few” he revealed on Skysports.

“I think they don’t know yet but maybe they will know now. I am sure that the first person that will come to talk to me about is Jamie Vardy,” Ndidi said of his teammates.

The Eagles midfielder also reflected on his performance against Chelsea in a 1-1 draw.

“It was a mixed feeling, I was hurt because I let the Chelsea goal happened, and I also scored a great goal that gave us the equalizer,” he told Skysports.

Ndidi was a key player for the Super Eagles as the country finished third at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt last June.

Meanwhile, Ndidi insists the Foxes are ready to pick their first three points of the season when they face newly-promoted Sheffield United in an English Premier League game on Saturday (today).
