SUPER Eagles and Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, has enrolled for a degree in business studies at De Montfort University in the UK as part of a long term plan to secure his future after football.
Ndidi, 22,said he wants to use his business degree to improve facilities for young footballers in Nigeria once he is done playing. He also revealed that he has tried to keep his degree study on a low profile by wearing a hoodie when on campus and even keep the news of it from his teammates.
“I try to keep a low profile, no one knows me here except for a few. I think they don’t know yet but maybe they will know now and I am sure that the first person that will come to talk to me about is Jamie Vardy,” Ndidi said.
He added that 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 today. Leicester City travel to South Yorkshire following successive draws with Wolves and Chelsea, to face the Blades, who have secured four points from their opening two matches.
Ndidi, who scored Leicester’s equaliser at the Stamford Bridge, says the Foxes can now approach this weekend’s outing with a sense of belief after their performance in West London. He noted that it is a game they should win.
