Ndidi Displeased at Leicester’s Champions League Miss

Wilfred Ndidi is not a happy man after Leicester City failed to qualify for the 2021-22 Champions League.

The midfield general has aired his displeasure as the Foxes failed to nail a UEFA c=Champions League berth on the last day in the Premier League season.


The Brendan Rodgers-led side had already won the FA Cup during the final stages of the season but Ndidi sees the top European competition as key.

“People with different opinions, every player wants to play in the Champions League if they have the opportunity but if you don’t have the opportunity you see a Cup you have to grab it,” Ndidi told Super Sport Monday Night Football.

“We played the final before the Premier League matches, so we actually grabbed that one and we hoped for qualifying for the Champions League.

“It’s not like we were just hoping to qualify for the Champions League and just let the FA Cup just go away like that.

“I’m very grateful that we grabbed that one but it wasn’t possible for us to go to the Champions League.”


Ndidi was a present figure in the Leicester midfield, making 26 appearances while having a 66% tackle success rate.
