Leicester Forward, Gray: Ndidi Is a Classy  Player

Leicester City forward, Demarai Gray, has described Nigeria midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi as a classy player.

Ndidi scored his first goal for Leicester in Wednesday's 3-1 win against Derby County after extra-time in the Fourth Round FA Cup replay at the King Power Stadium. 

Ndidi who was brought on before the start of extra-time, put Leicester 2-1 ahead with a superb left foot strike.

Gray scored a brilliant individual solo goal to make it 3-1 and sealed the win for Leicester.

Commenting on Ndidi's impact in the game, Gray stated that the former KRC Genk player is a big asset to The Foxes.

“It’s a positive that we’ve got players like that on the bench so that the game can go like it did," Gray told Leicester City website.

"They (Islam Slimani and Ndidi) coming on before extra-time made an impact and Wilfred's goal was brilliant.

“Since he’s come in, he’s been class and he’s added something to the team which we might have needed.

“Everything paid off , and everyone worked hard and got it right. It’ll give us a confidence boost going into Sunday’s game," Gray said.

And reacting to his goal which sealed the win for Leicester, Gray said: “Yes of course [I’m pleased], especially at the time of the game because it took all the pressure off us and killed the game.

“It’s nice to score because that’s what I want to do. When I’m playing, I want to be positive by making an impact and working hard for the team. Luckily, I got a goal.”
