Nigeria and Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, has revealed Jamie Vardy has taken on an unofficial coaching role.
The Nigeria international said that Vardy has been sharing his wealth of talents teaching his team-mates on when to shoot first-time, when to take a touch, when to hit the ball with power and when to use precision.
“He’s not just doing it for himself, he’s doing it for the team,”
“Before the game he’s always there to tell me how to hit the ball.
“Because he’s a goalscorer, he gives this advice to me and some other players.
“So he’s just there to guide us. He used to tell me ‘don’t strike!’ but now he tells me ‘don’t strike just pass it!’ he said.
Both players have been important to Leicester with Vardy an ever present in the team playing all The Foxes 19 matches in the English Premier League and scoring 17 goals in the process. While Ndidi has only missed a game out of the matches played in the league so far.
