Injured Ndidi Out For 10 Days

Injured Ndidi Out For 10 Days

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has provided update on the fitness of Wilfred Ndidi ahead of the Premier League visit of Leeds United on Sunday, Completesports.com reports.

Ndidi was withdrawn from action during Wednesday’s hard-fought 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park due to hamstring problem.

“It’s just a slight tear (for Ndidi),” Rodgers told reporters inside the King Power Centre at LCFC Training Ground.

“He will be [out for] a week to 10 days, which is unfortunate, but sometimes hamstrings can be much longer than that.

“Jonny’s fine. It’s been an ongoing issue with him for a little while, but he’ll be fine.”

Throughout the campaign so far, Leicester have battled on despite a host of injuries to key players and Rodgers says he is fully prepared to once again utilise the depth of his squad.

“It’s the same test we’ve had all season when we’ve had players missing,” he continued.

“Jamie is a top-class player, so is Wilf, but we’ve managed to get good results consistently over the season.

“As a coach or a manager, you have to find a way to get results and, very importantly for us, [maintain] the performance level.

“We played very well in midweek and we’ll look to take that into our next game. If you shine a light over the course of the season, we’ve had important players who have been missing consistently.

“It’s only really been up until the last week or so where we haven’t had that. We trust the squad. Of course, you miss someone of Jamie’s ability and the strengths he has.

“That would help anybody, in particular ourselves, but as I said, I thought Ayo (Ayoze Pérez) did very well in the week. We’ve got Kels (Kelechi Iheanacho) as well, who can come into the game, and it’s a collective effort to put in a level of performance that can see us win games.”
