Emirate FA Cup: Ferdinand Blames Ndidi For Chelsea Win Over Leicester City
By Sampson Adedeji
Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has blamed Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi for Chelsea goal.
Chelsea defeated Leicester city 0-1 in the quarter final of the Emirate FA Cup on Sunday with Ross Barkley netted the decider, BSN Reports.
Ferdinand believed Nigeria Star midfielder supposed to have lived up to the hype around him and save the day for the Foxes.
“The gap between the centre-backs starts to develop. When that happens, when that big gap comes, the big job is for Ndidi, who has had great reviews for how he’s played over the years, and rightly so.
Once you see the gap between the centre-backs when the ball’s wide, his job is to drop in, drop in here and be that guard in there. If you keep your eye on Ndidi here, and look how many times he looks over his shoulder to see where Barkley is.
“One look, two looks – when he looks there – he has to drop in there and cover the run from Barkley. He knows he can get in behind Ndidi because he’s not looking.
Barkley sees the space, darts into it, great ball, great finish. Bad defending from Ndidi and the midfield,” he told BT Sports.
