John Fashanu, has said Nigeria international, Wilfred Ndidi deserves to be Leicester City s highest earner due to his contributions to the club.
Ndidi, who joined the club from Genk in 2017, has been an integral part of the Foxes having spent six years at the King Power Stadium, with 201 appearances in all competitions to his name.
Ndidi, valued at €60m, currently earns £75,000 a week, below what Johnny Evans, James Maddison, and Kasper Schmeichel earn at the club.
Meanwhile, according to Football Insider, the Foxes are eager to agree to a new long-term contract with the player to ward off interests from his suitors.
Speaking with PUNCH Sports Extra, Fashanu said he believes Ndidi should be the club s highest-paid player.
“The reason why we are playing football is not just for fun but it has become a way of life and it is business.”
“Ndidi should be having the best of salary because he deserves it. The likes of Messi, the great Pele, Maradona, and Justin Fashanu were all the best players at their clubs during their time and they had the biggest salaries.
