Even before and then when I arrived at Leicester I heard it. I only wanted to be Wilfred Ndidi and not someone else.

"I focus on myself, I am always critical of myself, I do my best to improve as a footballer game by game and give my best for my club."

The Super Eagles of Nigeria midfielder added that the comparison with Kante isn't relevant to him and he doesn't pay attention to such critics. 

Ndidi added: "The comparison with others, about who is better or if Kante and I play alike, is irrelevant to me. I think all that comparison was for those who love to talk and I didn't focus on it.

"You're comfortable when you are yourself and not listening or trying to be something you are not."
