Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri, has hailed midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, for their 3-1 win over Derby County in an FA Cup replay on Wednesday.
The Super Eagles player scored his first goal for the Premier League champions in extra time, with the scores level at 1-1 after regulation time.
Ranieri has now said they made the right choice with Ndidi.
“I’m happy with Ndidi. This young player is full of personality and good character. We’ve chosen well,” Ranieri said in a post-match interview.
“For me it (the win) is important for Leicester. When I speak, I speak for Leicester.
“It’s very important this victory and to go through in the cup. It gives us confidence. It was a difficult match.
“When we scored, we played better. Then we scored again and we kept the ball well.”
