Ndidi: Leicester City must work for Champions League spot

Wilfried Ndidi has urged his Leicester City teammates to keep fighting to secure qualification for next season’s Uefa Champions League.

Brendan Rodgers’ men remain third on the Premier League table after playing out a goalless draw against Brighton and Hove Albion at home on Tuesday.

After a three-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, they resumed league action on Saturday against Watford with Ben Chilwell’s strike helping them earn a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road.

With seven games remaining for Leicester City in the English top-flight this season, Ndidi believes they can still keep their spot in the top-four and stage a return to Europe since their last campaign in the 2016-17 season.

“It will be a plus to us as players, in our careers, if we can play in the Champions League. But it is something we have to work for,” Ndidi told Football Daily.

“It is not about what we have done in past matches. These eight games remaining, it is important for us to actually fight hard and pick the Champions League ticket.

“It is something we have to work for, we have to stay there. If we do our best and get the points, then we will get there.”
