Ndidi Injured Again, Out For Couple Of Weeks

Wilfred Ndidi will spend a couple of weeks on the sidelines as a result of injury.

Ndidi sustained a muscle strain injury in training, according to Leicester City reporter, Owynn Palmer-Atkins.

“Brendan Rodgers tells me that Wilfred Ndidi has suffered a muscle strain in training and will be out for a couple of weeks,” Palmer-Atkins wrote on his Twitter handle.

The midfielder missed Leicester City’s 2-2 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday as a result of the setback.

The Nigeria international has been plagued with injuries in recent times.

Ndidi has played just 16 games in all competitions for the Foxes this season.

  • I said it that real age is catching up with this guy the other day. The rate at witch he get injure easily and lengthy rate of recovery is more than a pointer.

    It is time we start looking for a good replacement.

    • … And he is only 25 years old. Very soon Leicester will ship him out to a more obscure club and his career will fade.
      The current national under 20 team is treading on the same path. Sad. Eagles will continue to be dominated by foreign born pros or else we’ll fall out of reckoning using age cheats

      You might be right lol Sad to see Ndidi going through these but it is a fact that he failed the MRI in 2013…

        So looking at it….If he failed the MRI for the u17 in 2013 Ndidi might actually be 30-31

    Bros , Come back home and see some pastors in Naija for players .Its a an African pastor who understands African foundatios that can effective handle your matter. When things keep recurring in your life like this its a spiritual matter that needs to be settled spiritually. A word is enough for the wise. I rest my case.

    • It is not spiritual anything. Ndidi is “25”. With rigorous training nature cannot be cheated

  • @442, these guys too smell oyinbo, he might not believe in what you say now. Ndidi was on a sideline due to injuries for more than half of last season.

  • It is not spiritual anything. Ndidi is “25”. With rigorous training nature cannot be cheated

  • My worry for Ndidi is that he might struggle to regain his starting 11 slot in the Super Eagles in the next 12 months even when he fully returns from injury.

    I keep saying it, unless Peseiro changes his style or unless NFF ditches Peseiro, it’s hard to see where a player of Ndidi’s mould fit in the current playing philosophy of the Super Eagles.

    Peseiro plays with a light midfield with only two box-to-box fluid centre midfielders who are intelligent with the ball with dynamic movements, creative deliveries and a healthy balance of attacking and defensive acumen.

    Ndidi – in my humble opinion – even when his form is boiling hotter than the waters of Kalamazoo doesn’t fit the bill.

    I will never play him as a centre back as we have a plethora of quality natural options in that department.

    If either Eguavoen or Gernot Rohr was still in charge, then their 4-1-4-1 or 4-2-3-1 options would still accommodate Ndidi’s
    pièce de résistance.

    But Peseiro’s flat 4-4-2 only suits fluid midfielders like Aribo, Iwobi, Onyeka, Etebo, Onyedika, Aamo, Bonke, Kingsley Michael or even Kelechi Nwakali.
