Wilfred Ndidi has shared his thoughts on the similarities between the African Cup of Nations and the Premier League.
The Leicester City midfielder believes that there are not many obvious differences in the intensity and physicality of the two competitions.
The 25-year-old is considered one of the best central defensive midfielders in the English top flight, having led almost all ball-return stats in the last two or three seasons.
Ndidi put in a brilliant performance in Nigeria’s 1-0 Matchday 1 win over Egypt’s Pharaohs, helping to prevent Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah from wreaking havoc.
Now he is opining that the African flagship tournament is similar to the Premier League in intensity and physicality.
