Sometimes I hawked pepper, I sold water [sachets], tomatoes and fruits for my mother.

“But I became famous for selling [groundnut] peanuts. They call me the groundnut boy. I did all these things to support my mother. “As a side hustle, to get my own personal money I was wiping the windscreens for cars held (up) in traffic. If I’m lucky sometimes I make about N2000 (almost R80) in a day but the highest I made was N3000 (around R118).” Ndidi started his career as a youngster in Lagos with Nath Boys Academy before moving to Belgium to play for Genk.

His performances attracted attention from top clubs but he ended up with Leicester City and he has been superb for them.

The home defeat Jose Mourinho and his wards suffered against Leicester City made them drop from top four as Spurs are now occupying fifth position on the Premier League table.
