Leicester City manager Brendan expects Wilfred Ndidi to return to action for the Foxes soon but has ruled out the midfielder from Wednesday’s (today) league clash against Fulham, reports Completesports.com.
The Nigeria international missed Leicester’s 3-1 home defeat to Leeds United on Sunday due to harmstring injury.
Rodgers is however hopeful Ndidi will be up and running again after the minor setback.
“We’re hopeful that Jamie, towards the weekend, won’t be too far away, which will be great news for us. That’s what we anticipate with him,” Rodgers told the media at LCFC Training Ground.

“Wilf won’t be too much longer after that. It’s just the nature of this season. If you look at how compact the games are and the intensity of them, it’s very, very difficult for players.
“I think the players have been amazing in terms of the level of performance they’re giving considering the intensity of the games and how close they are together. It’s just something you have to cope with.”
Ndidi spent around three months on the sidelines earlier in the season as a result of groin injury.
The 24-year-old has scored one goal in 11 league appearances for the former Premier League champions this season.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
