Leicester Boss Rodgers Provides Update on Ndidi Injury

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has provided injury news update on Nigeria midfielder Wilfred Ndidi reports Completesports.com.

Ndidi limped off on the hour mark in Leicester City’s 2-1 defeat to Ligue 1 side Stade Rennes on Thursday night.

“Ndidi has a blocked tackle, so it is his medial ligament and his knee, so we will see how that is,” Rodgers told BT Sports after the game.

The 25-year-old is now a major doubt for Nigeria’s 2022 FIFA World Cup playoffs against Ghana next week.

His absence will be a big blow to Nigeria’s chances of securing a spot in Qatar 2022.

Everton’s Alex Iwobi is already ruled out of the game due to suspension, while another midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo recently returned to action for Watford after spending around five months on the sidelines as result of injury.

Nigeria will face perennial rivals Ghana at the Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi on March 25, and host same opponent at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja four days later.

  • This is Ndidi and Rodgers matter tire me o always he chooses to be injured come a crucial game what kind of thing is this and I am saying this because he is Leicester most important player na wa o!!!!

    @Ugo Iwunze the word should be he always chooses to develop a cold feet at every crucial game…

  • Michel 2 years ago

    My fear now is osimehn,I hope he doesn’t hurt himself because he and ndidi are always getting injured bf crucial games,can he play with caution?I pray we qualify ,I heard that eguavoen will be naming a new captain bf the game and I was suspecting that it will be ndidi .who will replace this young man now? Onazi cannot do it,he has been out of the team for long,I don’t know if they can still bring in bonke or any other midfielder,apart from dessers,another goal scorer that should have been invited is nwakeme Anthony.

    • Michel that is a very big possibility as Napoli have already come out to say Osimhen has been playing with pain since Barcelona Game, I will not be surprised if Osimhen limps off in the Udinese game forming Injury after Scoring a goal or two. Bros if that Happens I will campaign for Ndidi and Osimhen NOT!! being invited for World Cup nno matter how much I love them. Then they will NOT! deserve to be there this pattern is becoming too much because we all know that they are the two most important players to their clubs

        @ugo, bro forget Ndidi the guy is never ready for prime let him continue to shine at Leicester. This injury was premeditated, the guy was rested against arsenal during the week, for one fake injury u remember. fear of Partey bringing is stock down is the beginning of wisdom for our generalissimo.For ndidi is about valuation not about leadership and patriotism. He knows Partey will outplay him home and away A generalissimo who’s always afraid to lead. Mutiu Adepoju, bright omokaro, God bless u guys

    Almost half out our first 1q us either injured or battling loss of form or no game time since Afcon…..It was supposed to be a battle of Partey vs Ndid now who can battle Parrtey in the absence of Ndidi…

    You see why it is imperative to select players PURELY based on merit rather than ethnicity, quota system or political patronage? Suppose Dessers were on the list. If Osimhen can’t appear because of diarrhoea, he’d step in without much worry. Now that Ndidi will likely not show up, the very coaches who penned down players names are getting fidgety with headaches, maybe casting looks after their main list which was filled with pseudo players. To borrow a word from the Ota man: I de laff oh!

      When we played the first stage of the world cup qualifying matches, we should remember that our best match was when the British clubs insisted that our players should not go to cape_verde to play , we played our best matches without them
