- Wilfred Ndidi
However, fans took to Twitter to express their grievances about the ranking.
How on earth do you do a ranking of Best Defensive Midfielder and omit Wilfred Ndidi. Even had the guts to put Brozovic ahead of Busquets and Partey. N’Golo Kante who hasn’t played as a Defensive Midfielder in 2 years is number 1 😂🤣. This has to be joke of the year 😂🤣 pic.twitter.com/cAWq3qMqlU

Some fans have asked the former Genk player to leave to a bigger club so his stakes could rise.
Wilfred Ndidi…. Don’t make the same mistake Okocha made during his own career, U need to leave Leicester city for a bigger club, even if it’s Arsenal, they underrate u a lot because u ar playing in a small club
