Emotions as Wilfred Ndidi plays his last match for Genk
Players of Belgian club Genk have wished Nigeria star Wilfred Ndidi the best at Premier League champions Leicester City after he played his last game.
Genk beat Gent 2-0 Tuesday night for the Nigeria international to end his time in Belgium on a winning note.
Ndidi is set to complete his transfer to Leicester in the New Year.
He will cost Leicester an initial 15 million pounds, which could rise to 18.6 million pounds with add-ons going forward.
His teammate and closest friend Leon Baily said on snapchat:”Good luck in Leicester City bro, we will meet again.”
Genk defender Omar Colley wrote on Instagram: “Great victory tonight and good luck to Ndidi in Leicester. We’re gonna miss you.”
Ndidi has already confirmed the Gent game was his final game for Genk.
The 20-year-old said it was an emotional evening on Tuesday and gave thanks to Peter Maes, sacked from his role as Genk boss earlier this week.
“I really want to thank Peter Maes,” Ndidi told Play Sports after coming through 90 minutes on Tuesday night.
“Am I emotional? Yes, a little, especially with the situation surrounding Maes. He made me the player I am today. I got my transfer thanks to him.”
