Nigeria Professional Football League side MFM FC missed out on having a share of Wilfred Ndidi big money move from Genk to Leicester City Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusive reveal.

Ndidi joined Leicester City in January from Belgium side Genk in a deal reportedly worth £16M, with his nursery team in Nigeria Nath Boys getting 20% of the amount paid to the Belgians.

However MFM FC could have been the team receiving the money if not for the former General Manager of the team‎ Godwin Enakhena who reportedly vetoed his registration when the team were about to go professional.

” Few years ago, Ndidi lost his relative in the Ikeja bomb blast and moved in to stay with a soldier, who later brought him to MFM FC. He was very young and still very raw but coach Fidelis Ilechukwu liked what he saw in him”, an MFM insider told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” We were on the verge of playing professional football back then, I think in the Nigeria League One ( Third division) but the then General Manager told the coach that he is too young and looks fragile, particularly as he is a central defender.

” Few months later he went to Nath Boys, shone at a Lagos state tournament and earned a call up to the U-17, same year he went to the U-20 World Youth Championship. The rest is history as they say”.
