How Ndidi Can Regain His Place In Starting Lineup — Leicester Boss Rodgers

Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers has stated that Wilfred Ndidi must work hard in training to regain top form.

The 26-year-old has been a consistent performer for the Foxes since his arrival from Belgian Pro League outfit, KRC Genk in January 2017.

Rodgers has however overlooked Ndidi in his starting lineup in recent outings.

Ndidi was left on the bench for the entire duration of the Carabao Cup win against MK Dons.

The midfielder featured as a substitute in the home defeat to Newcastle United last weekend.

The Nigeria international struggled with injuries last season and has also missed a couple of games this term after spending time in the treatment room.

“We’ve got a really busy schedule in January,” Rodgers told reporters.

“I had a good sit-down with him and really honest conversation and he knows what he’s been at in terms of the level when I first came in here for a couple of years.

“He has struggled with a number of injuries but it’s just a case of sometimes coming away from the team and working on the training field and just resetting everything.”

“I can see that in training that has allowed him to have that freshness back in his game so there’s no doubt over the coming weeks he will be ready to start,” he added.
