Leicester City midfielder James Maddison is happy to have Wilfred Ndidi back in the team after the midfielder spent time on sidelines due to injury, reports NGNewsHub.com.
Ndidi made his first league start in the Foxes’ 3-0 win against Brighton&Hove Albion on Sunday since picking up an injury versus Burnley in September.
The Nigeria international was one of the key performers for Leicester City in the game and Maddison has nothing but praise for his teammate.
“Wilfred Ndidi, [it’s] really good to have him back, I feel safe when I’m in there with Wilf behind me. It’s almost like he’s two players, and what Wilf’s improved on a lot, especially since I joined the Club, is his passing ability,”Maddison told the club’s official website.
“It’s improved a lot and [he] wins the ball back, and I remember, his first pass being forward to me. [A] forward, along-the-floor, hard pass and that’s something that he’s really improved on.
“And then we built [on that in] the game. Vards (Jamie Vardy) made a run in behind, came back to me and I remember being one vs. one. [I] shifted it on my right, got it back on my left, and I’m comfortable off my left.
“I feel just as confident shooting [with] my left as I do with my right, and it was one of them: I knew it was in straight away, so [I’m] really happy.”
