Iliman Ndiaye has been one of the stars of the show for Sheffield United this season and Carl Asaba has urged fans to come and see him while they can.
Ndiaye has already scored four goals this season as he’s added the finishing product to his already impressive performances in a Blades shirt. Now a full Senegal international as well, Ndiaye is widely seen as being one the most exciting players to emerge at Bramall Lane in recent times.
And speaking to the BBC this week, former striker Carl Asaba has urged Sheffield United fans to get to Bramall Lane to see the striker while he’s still in red and white.
“Honestly, he is the one. He manipulates the ball, the way he controls it and moves it, he is unplayable at times. He is one that you can’t take your eyes off on the pitch. I just hope all the Blades fans who haven’t seen him in person get to see him ‘cos he is incredible. Different sport he plays to what I played, Asaba said on the Blades Heaven podcast.
Ndiaye will be hoping to add to his tally when local rivals Rotherham come to The Lane this weekend.
Our View: United Will Be Lucky To Get Another Year From Ndiaye
It might sound negative, but if United can keep Ndiaye beyond January then it will be a huge bonus. If he continues playing as he is right now then the Premier League big-wigs will be sniffing.
While so much talk in the summer was keeping Sander Berge, the reality was that keeping hold of Ndiaye was probably just as important, if not more.
His partnership with Oli McBurnie is blossoming and as the season progresses, that will only get better. Asaba has a point about United fans seeing Ndiaye while they can. This is a special talent with so much more to give and sadly, the Blades won’t have the financial clout to keep him unless we win promotion.
