Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri says he wasn’t surprised to see Wilfred Ndidi score a spectacular drive against Derby County in the FA Cup replay which they won 3-1.

Ndidi was on for the pitch for just 282 seconds when he rifled home a cracker from the edge of the box after receiving a pass from Riyad Mahrez few metres in the half of Derby County.

While the Nigerian has earned praises for his feat, Ranieri who sanctioned the January acquisition of the midfielder cum defender says the goal didn’t come to him as a surprise.

” We know he (Ndidi) has it in him. He did it in Belgium and even in training his shooting has been very impressive during practice”, Ranieri said.

” Maybe the only surprise has to be the fact that it was taken from his weaker foot, which is the left. But that tells you his quality. He has a big future ahead of him”.
