Ndidi: Leicester Players Don’t Care Who Replaces Ranieri, We Want Victories

Leicester City's Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has stressed that players of the Premier League champions are not necessarily bothered about Claudio Ranieri's replacement following the departure of the Italian, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Caretaker manager Craig Shakespeare took charge of the Foxes against Liverpool on Monday which they won 3-1 and will also in the dugout on Saturday as they face Hull City at  King Power Stadium.

"Our job is to play and win games. Whoever comes in, it does not matter. We just want to make the fans happy," Ndidi told Leicester City FC Television. 

On Saturday's fixture against fellow struggling side, Hull City, Ndidi maintains that the intensity must remain high.

"Intensity is very important not just against Hull but in every game. It is very, very important. It comes with the focus of the team," he added.

"When everyone is focused, the fight is there and it becomes easier for everyone. We fight like a family, like brothers.

"It was a big game against Liverpool. I would say if we had won games before Liverpool, they would have also been big. Every win is important because we want three points."

Ndidi, who made a massive 11 tackles in the game against the Reds and that had everyone talking, added: "I enjoyed the victory more than the battle because I was fighting for the team."

The Nigeria international has established a productive partnership in the centre of midfield with Danny Drinkwater and Ndidi says he has already taken a great deal from playing alongside the former Manchester United man. 

Ndidi said of his new midfield partner: “He’s an experienced player so he tries to make things easy for me. I’ve learnt a lot from him. We both try to make things easy for each other, so that way it makes me adapt better. 

“I’m really happy to be playing and I’ll try to work hard to be there to help the team. The key for me is to help the team and win more than me being in the team.”
