Brendan Rogers Confirms Wilfred Ndidi Injury Duration (See Details)
Leicester manager Rogers has given the latest update on Wilfred Ndidi injury situation with the player set to be out for 12 weeks, MySportDab reports.
The player is set to undergo surgery tomorrow and hopefully be out for almost 12 weeks recovering.
The Nigerian player suffered an abductor injury during the Leicester City match against Burnley on Sunday.
He played from the start to the finish as they recorded a win in the encounter after which a test was carried out and confirmed he needs surgery.
“That surgery will take probably place tomorrow morning,” Rodgers told the media on Friday ahead of Sunday’s fixture with Man City.
“It’s just unfortunate, it’s come right off the bone, so he’s going to be up to 12 weeks we think. He’s a huge player for us.
“It’s something that showed his mentality against Burnley because he felt it.
Towards the end of last season, he felt some pain there and he felt it late on in the Burnley game.
“I’m sure he’ll make a really good recovery and we’ll welcome him back when he comes back, but there’s no doubt he’s a miss.”
Brendan Rogers Added:
“We have players capable of stepping in. Papy Mendy signed a new contract in the summer and has started the season very well,” he continued.
“Hamza Choudhury was excellent against Arsenal, he really covered the ground and was defensively very good, so we have enough cover in that position.”
Before Wilfred Ndidi injury he was drafted to play as a center back which he did played very well for the Foxes.
