Former Manchester United and Everton defender Phil Neville says Leicester City star Wilfred Ndidi reminds him of a young Yaya Toure in his prime with the way he goes into goal scoring position from his deep role.
Ndidi struck for the third time this season by latching onto a poorly cleared ball in the box of Crystal Palace to put his team one goal up in their 3-0 thrashing of the Eagles.
Neville who was in the Premier League studio as a guest analyst hailed the instinct of Ndidi in the box, and also the way he has manage to add goals to his game since moving from Genk to Leicester City in January.
” He’s the closest to Yaya Toure in his prime, defensive minded players who can also score goals. He took the striker’s position in the box, and finished it up like one. He has obviously settled down quite quickly than most of us thought “, Neville said.
