Ndidi lauds Maresca for Leicester's record-breaking beginning
Posted : 22 September 2023
Wilfred Ndidi attributes Leicester City's exceptional beginning to the season and revamped playing approach to the guidance of coach Enzo Maresca.
Maresca, an ex-West Brom and Juventus player, assumed the managerial role at Leicester in June with the primary goal of guiding the Foxes back to the Premier League.
Currently, after seven Championship matches, the team is placed second, just a point behind leaders Preston North, and gearing up for their next clash against Bristol City.
Furthermore, Leicester has advanced to the League Cup's third round without conceding a goal and is set to challenge Liverpool next.
Flourishing under Maresca's leadership, Ndidi has been a consistent presence this season, contributing three goals and an assist over nine games.
Ahead of the match against Bristol City, Ndidi shared his admiration for Maresca with Leicester's official media, praising his impact in unifying the squad and simplifying their strategy.
The team's cohesion is evident both on the field and amongst the substitutes. Ndidi emphasized the importance of their collective mindset and credited Maresca's remarkable influence since joining.
Last week, Ndidi marked his first Championship goal, helping Leicester to a commendable 4-1 victory against Southampton.
