Ndidi rues Ranieri’s sack, says Leicester improved because of ‘new mindset’

Ndidi rues Ranieri's sack, says Leicester improved because of 'new mindset'

Super Eagles midfielder and new Leicester City star, Wilfred Ndidi, believes that the recent improvement by the English champions since the sack of their former Boss Claudio Ranieri has been down to a change of mindset among the players.

Leicester, under new manager Craig Shakespeare, has gone through four games without a loss, and Ndidi believes that he has not seen any spectacular changes in the team except that they developed a new mental approach to the game.

“Nothing much has changed, only the fact that the coach was sacked and we developed a new mindset. Our mind is focused on winning, avoiding the same mistakes we made in the past and to keep fighting to get the necessary points.

“The new manager combines a great knowledge of the team, lessons picked up from previous matches and has his own ideas on how to set us up for the challenges we face,” Ndidi was quoted as saying by The Sun.

Ndidi, who moved to the Premier League club from Genk and has made eight League appearances, rubbished claims in some quarters that players of Leicester influenced the sacking of Ranieri.

“It hurts to think people could say that. The players continued to fight to get results.

“Unfortunately we couldn’t manage to do it. But I doubt there are footballers who don’t care about winning.

“Claudio had a special effect on everyone and to suddenly hear about his sack was shocking,” said Ndidi.
