Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, has revealed how he secretly combines playing football with university education in England.
Ndidi revealed this much during an interview with SkySports where he said that none of his teammates at Leicester City are aware that he is studying for a business degree at De Montfort University in Leicester.
“I train and then come here (to study at De Montfort) until 6 pm, ” he said.
While none of his teammates are aware of his decision to get a degree, the 22-year-old defensive midfielder believes that could change now.

“I think they don’t know yet but maybe they will know now and after, the first person that will come for me is (Jamie) Vardy – for sure.”
Ndidi has been a key figure at the King Power Stadium since his arrival two years ago from Belgium and has continued under new manager, Brendan Rodgers, whom he is excited to play for.
“I am really excited because of the coach, the manager has really given [not just me] the whole team the confidence to play.”
The Super Eagles star, who was part of the Nigerian team that finished with a bronze medal at the AFCON2019, is already thinking of his future after football as he hopes to out his business degree to good use by building facilities for young footballers in Nigeria once he retires.
