Parents & Family

Wilfred Ndidi Biography

Theo and Marleen van Vlierden are Ndidi’s foster parents who took him in at the age of seventeen when he first arrived in Belgium in 2014 for his two-month test period with KRC Genk. He stayed with his foster parents until he left for Leicester City 18 months later.

Somehow, someway, Ndidi’s biological parents’ names are unknown. The only name being touted around is a man referred to as Ndidi senior.

The reason for this might not be unconnected to the way his father, a military man, treated him when he was growing up as a child.

Ndidi senior was apparently very strict beating his son with a ‘Koboko’, a cow skin, leaving the youngster in pain for days.

His military dad didn’t like the idea of Ndidi playing football and did everything to stop him. But, he fought for his passion that went on until Nath Boys FC came calling, then Genk and afterwards, Leicester City.

Ndidi’s mother…I mean his biological mum is known, after all, there is an image of both of them online.
