Wilfred Ndidi is heavily missed in the Leicester line-up, being swapped from a defensive role into a more moveable option for Enzo Maresca. No player at present can cover for the Nigerian international as his injury became more serious than first expected.
Ndidi (26) is a player far above Championship level, looking at other options for his future. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Man Utd and Chelsea are all being clubs linked with Ndidi in the past.
Leicester have struggled in their last two games, being defeated at home to Leeds and away to Middlesbrough, with Ndidi out of action. Leicester do have a massive problem to handle. Cesare Cassadei and Ricardo Pereira are two players used in Ndidi’s position, but none have managed to be a good enough cover.
You can talk about this and that, but Ndidi missing is the reason behind the situation and with him back in the team, Leicester will be a much better unit.
We hope Leicester manager Enzo Maresca knows what a key player the Nigerian is, and not letting him leave in January, even with a contract running out in the summer.
Jannik Vestergaard is a hot name at present, but he also will be out of a contract in the summer. With a return to Premier League, not really pacy enough to handle the challenging coming up a step higher, so it’s a massive decision making for Enzo Maresca.
The stats presented from Danish Scout is spot on as we have talked about earlier, and his only reason for being absent from the Denmark squad is his lack of first team football in the last two seasons since joining Leicester, being back with consistancy at present.
The same questions will be asked regarding Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho, both waiting on their destiny and not really showing the work needed to keep Leicester in the top en of the Championship table, both having struggles to get any type of finishing in the last two games, getting to start in one each.
But again to judge players on their current form is the most important, especially at this point, with some sort of momentum in place by the end of the season, knowing were the team will be playing next season. It will be a difficult mix to solve, but hopefully some type of idea of the Leicester future will come to the surface.
What we have seen so far, makes it difficult to believe Tom Cannon and Cesare Cassadei being first team alternatives and performing at a level needed to get consistant performances for a promotion push.
