Chelsea signed N’Golo Kante from Leicester City in 2016, and the former Foxes midfielder has gone on to play a pivotal role for Chelsea.

Ndidi Wilfred was signed as Kante’s replacement, and the Nigerian international has done so well in place of Kante.

There has been this comparison between Kante and Ndidi Wilfred, but Leicester City’s Ndidi has described himself as a different player from Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante who he sees as a machine.

“I’ve always seen myself as Ndidi, I want to be seen as Ndidi,” the Super Eagles midfielder said in an Instagram live.

“Kante is a great player, if you see the way he plays, you’ll know he’s a machine.

“The advice I got right from the time while I was playing that position is just be yourself.

“Every player has his own quality, it’s not everybody that can be like Ronaldo or Messi, everybody has his own way.

“I just want to be myself, play my game and fight for three points.”
