Ndidi: Leicester ready for EPL restart

first_imgRelatedPosts Super Eagles stars model new national team jersey Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Ings not interested in leaving Saints, Southampton manager says The Leicester City squad are ready to face whatever the Premier League throws at them as they prepare for the restart of the season, midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has declared.After more than two months training alone, City have been back at Belvoir Drive as a team for the past fortnight, resuming contact sessions last week. And while they only have three more weeks to prepare before the campaign resumes on the weekend of June 20-21, Ndidi is confident he and his team-mates are already in the right physical and mental state for their remaining nine league games and push to secure qualification to the Champions League.“I would say we’re ready because even during the lockdown, everyone was working at home,” the 23-year-old, who became a first-time dad during the break, told LCFC TV. “So, we’re always ready and we’ll just see what comes next.“We’re just working hard. Everyone is keeping fit, working hard and the mentality is great, so we’ll just see what comes.”Manager Brendan Rodgers backed up that statement, and said he has been impressed with what he has seen from his squad on the training ground.“This early feeling has been about getting back into some sort of normality, getting into contact again, and I have to say, the players have been superb,” the manager said. “They’ve gone away and done a lot of work in their lockdown, come back and we tested them and they’re at a really high level, which is testament to the work they’ve done while we’ve been giving them programmes.”What the City players have not had for the past two months is the camaraderie of being with their teammates.That has changed now, and Ndidi believes it will spur the squad on.“I’m so glad because after staying home for so long, training alone, I’m so happy to see to see the boys, to see everyone in the training ground,” he said.“It has been amazing because seeing these guys, everyone is okay. So, we’re really happy to be back. I’m really, really happy to see these boys and see the manager and everyone. “The work I was doing in the garden, it was more difficult because I was alone. There was no push.“But training with the other guys now, you see some guys faster than you, so you try to push and try to catch up because you follow the pace of someone even better than you. You have to give 100 per cent.”Tags: Leicester City FCPremier LeagueWilfred Ndidilast_img read more
