Let’s Talk! Who Is The Better Defensive Midfielder, Ndidi Or Kante?

Hello football lovers, I would love us to settle this argument of who the better defensive midfielder is between Nigeria International Wilfred Ndidi and Frenchman Ngolo Kante.

The both players have made a very impressive impact in both their club and national teams. Having great influence and creativity at the middle of the park whenever they play. Wilfred Ndidi is a Nigerian midfielder who plays for Leicester city while Ngolo Kante is French midfielder who plays for Chelsea.

Most Nigerians feel Ndidi is the better of the two, whereas full-blood Chelsea fans believe they have the better footballer in Kante. Most fans feel Kante is a better player, since he has won premier league twice (Both at leicester and chelsea) and the world cup with the French national team in 2018.

However, Ndidi has established himself as one of the best players in Leicester City and has arguably been the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League this season, having improved massively over the last two years. As well as leading the season’s league charts for the most tackles and recoveries, he has also been responsible for turning Leicester into the PL’s best defensive outfit.

However, before I make my decision I would like to take us through an overall statistics of their performances for the last 3 seasons. Let’s check them out.

2016/2017 SEASON

2017/2018 SEASON

2018/2019 SEASON

2019/2020 SEASON

From these statistics it is very clear that Wilfred Ndidi has been a better defensive midfielder than Ngolo Kante.

So guys over to you, I would love to hear from you.
