Ndidi’s injury will take him out for 10 days – Rodgers

Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers, has revealed that Wilfred Ndidi’s latest injury will only make him miss Sunday’s Premier League clash against Leeds.

He however said it might take him out for ten days.

Ndidi was replaced just before half-time in Leicester’s clash against Everton at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.

The Nigerian’s season has been blighted by injuries having missed almost three months earlier in the campaign due to an adductor surgery.

However, his latest injury is not expected to keep him out for that long with Rodgers expecting his midfield general to come back in ten days.

“It’s just a slight tear (for Ndidi),” the 48-year-old said in his press conference per LCFC website. “He will be [out for] a week to 10 days, which is unfortunate, but sometimes hamstrings can be much longer than that.

Ndidi’s absence is a big blow for the Foxes, who will also be without their top marksman, Jamie Vardy for the Leeds clash. The Nigerian has made 11 league appearances for Leicester this season.

Joining Ndidi on the sidelines are Dennis Praet, Wes Morgan, and star striker Jamie Vardy, who is still recovering from his hernia operation.

The positive update is that he remains on course to return to training by the middle of next week, having done some work in the gym on Friday.

“He’s six days post-operation,” said Rodgers. “Having been sore initially, I saw him in the gym, he’s working very well and he’s starting to run.

“We’re just looking closely at his rehabilitation from it, so we haven’t earmarked a game yet. We’ll look into that next week.”

If Vardy isn’t ready to face Wolves next weekend, his next opportunity to play will be in the FA Cup fifth round against Brighton on Wednesday, February 10.
