Ndidi opens up on the fears he had before joining Leicester

    Wilfred Ndidi was well aware of the huge challenge awaiting him before his Leicester move but was happy to take the opportunity regardless.

    Ndidi has revealed he was happy to soak up the pressure that came with his Leicester City move rather than shy away from it.

    After impressing in three seasons for Belgian side Genk, the Nigeria international joined the Foxes in a €19m move.

    For Ndidi, there were many reasons to be afraid of what lied ahead of him at the King Power Stadium.

    His arrival came at a time where Leicester City won the league and was in search of a replacement for N’golo Kante who left for Chelsea.

    The 23-year-old looks back at the transfer and insists he rather saw it as an opportunity to improve himself.

    “The pressure I got was that they just won the league, [N’Golo] Kante left and they were looking for a replacement. Seeing this whole situation, it was very scary for me,” the 23-year-old told Out of Home Podcast.

    “I was comfortable at Genk but it was like an opportunity for me to actually develop in my career. It was the right time for me to go because the club [Genk] wanted me to progress in my career.

    “It was difficult at that time because I had to leave for another country and start afresh. Even during training, everyone wanted to see what I can do because the person who just left actually made a mark. So, the pressure was just there.

    “But, I encouraged myself to be myself and not trying to fill in anybody’s shoes. All I wanted to do was make a mark for myself which is so possible; and after playing the first two games, I got comfortable.”

    Ndidi has risen to be one of the league’s best in his position and has made the Leicester holding midfield role his own.

    The 23-year-old has formed an integral pivot in Leicester’s midfield and looks to be enjoying life at the King Power Stadium.
