Post Football Plans:  Ndidi, Tomori charting same way forward

 

Leicester City Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi  and Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori may be playing for different clubs and different countries, but both players appear to tilting to the same direction in terms of making plans for post football era.

For both players sound education is the key to securing a better future after parting ways with the round leather game.

Recall that Ndidi recently enrolled at the  De Montfort University (DMU) where he is pursuing in Business and Management.

In the same vein Fikayo Tomori has revealed that he doesn’t join team-mates for FIFA and Fortnite sessions… because he’s studying for a business management degree.

The 21 year old is studying pursuing his own course via the Open University.

“Football is not going to go on forever. Whenever I retire, or if I get an injury I have something I’m working towards that can stand me in good stead for the future. I spend about eight to 10 hours a week, reading all the time, trying to learn new things,”Tomori told BBC

Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham

Tomori has broken into the Chelsea side this season and earned his first senior England call-up for the games against Czech Republic and Bulgaria although he could not make a debut in the 2-1 loss to Czech Republic.

Tomori hopes to complete the degree next year

After gaining experience on loan at Brighton, Hull and Derby, Tomori has been given an opportunity in the Chelsea first team by Frank Lampard this season and has certainly seized his chance with some excellent performances.

Tomori was also eligible to represent Canada or Nigeria, but he has now committed to England and will hope to have a key part to play at Euro 2020 next summer if Gareth Southgate’s side qualify as expected even as he hopes that he gets a time to debut against Bulgaria tonight just like fellow Nigeria born player and teammate Tammy Abraham made his three minutes debut against Czech Republic.
