Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, has said Kelechi Iheanacho is more than his team mate at Leicester City.
Ndidi admits it is good to have his compatriot around, owing to their great relationship stretching back to the youth set-up.
The duo is expected to feature for the Foxes on Thursday night when they host Randers in the Europa Conference League at the King Power Stadium.
“The relationship between me and [Iheanacho] is very great. It’s amazing because people thought we were just teammates, playing for Leicester and playing for the national team,” Ndidi said as quoted by the club’s official website.
“But I have known Kelechi since we were in the academy, very young, so it’s not just new. We’ve been very close since we were in [Nigeria] Under-17s together. It’s been amazing having him around. I’m enjoying every moment.”
