Nigerian midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, has completed his first degree at De Montfort University in England.
The Leicester City midfielder revealed this in a video interview with Football Daily explaining that the degree will afford him more options outside football.
Ndidi explained that the knowledge in business and management will come in handy as he plans to get into business after he retires from playing.
He said, “Yeah, I am done. I did like a 10 course class which can enroll me into a proper university degree.”
Back in 2019, Ndidi was interviewed by Sportsmail and spoke extensively on his desire to pursue education while still being an active footballer.
“I have spare time, so instead of sitting and playing FIFA, it’s good to understand the four walls of schooling,” Ndidi told Sportsmail. “In Nigeria some players want to play football and then they forget about school. But if you do both you can continue with whichever one works out, instead of just hoping for football, football — and then you don’t make it.”
Ndidi also spoke about a visison to create more options outside football for youths in Nigeria.
