Chidozie Awaziem has labeled Leicester City star Wilfred Ndidi as the most hardworking Super Eagles star.

The 23-year-old Nigerian football star was recently voted the tenth most valuable defensive midfielder worth about €45 million.

Ndidi has been on top of his game since he joined the Premier League outfit in January 2017 from the Belgian League side Genk.

The Foxes' star has finished atop of the best tackler in the English topflight in the last two seasons - but his hopes of retaining the record this term might be threatened.

He has made 21 EPL appearances so far this campaign - scoring twice and assisting one other in the process.

Meanwhile, his hard work does not end with his club as the midfielder's work rate has been noticed by his teammates.

Awaziem also revealed that Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi is the prayer warrior whenever the national team opens.

With the absence of Francis Uzoho, the former Warri Wolves goaltender remains the Super Eagles number one and that is not likely to change with the 2020 FIFA World Cup qualifiers approach.

The 33-year-old has been superb for his Premier League Soccer side - winning the player of the month awards for September and October 2019.

Few months after helping Nigeria win bronze medal at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations championship in Egypt last summer.
