Rodgers: Ndidi Has Made ‘Miraculous Recovery’  From Injury

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says Wilfred Ndidi has made “a miraculous recovery” after undergoing a minor surgery for a knee injury, reports Completesports.com.

Ndidi has missed the Foxes last three games in all competitions as a result of the setback.

The former Premier League champions also failed to record a win in the three games.

The Foxes forced Aston Villa to a 1-1 in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at the King Power Stadium and lost to Southampton and Burnley.

Rodgers initially stated that Ndidi could be out for up to six weeks after the surgery, but the former Liverpool manager revealed that the Nigerian midfielder has made a surprise recovery and could be in the squad for Wednesday’s clash against West Ham United.

“There’s a great chance he (Ndidi) could be in the squad tomorrow,”Rodgers told a news conference on Tuesday.

“He’s made a miraculous recovery. It’s been 11 days.

“”It’s a great testament to him and the medical team. We didn’t want to rush him, but over the last few days, he’s been fantastic. He’s had tests and come through them well.

“It’s a real colossal player for us. He covers a lot of space for our attacking players. There aren’t many better than him. It’s a huge boost for us.”

Ndidi has featured in 20 Premier League games for Leicester City this season and scored two goals.

    This one that this man is singing about ‘miraculous recovery’ after losing 3 matches without Ndidi, I hope he’s not just trying to rush the kid back into action only for a relapse to occur later.

    With a much awaited move to one of the biggest teams by summer in the pipeline, a relapse into a long term injury is all but what Wilfred needs in his career now.

    Ebuehi, Onazi are still free in mind……Abeg Caution is the word o..!

  • Hope Brendan Rogers’ selfishness will not end up destroying one of Nigeria’s brightest football hopes. Ndidi should be given ample time to recover fully from his knee surgery (minor or not). Rushing him into action in the name of “miraculous recovery” only points to the fact that Rogers is one poor coach who has been taking undue credit for the work that Ndidi has been doing for that team. It also exposes the hypocrisy of the English press that continues to sing the praises of average English players while the real supper star is only given passing mention.
    Now we know that one player that carries the fortune of an entire English Premiership Clubside on his lean shoulders – Wilfred Ndidi! 
    Please let the young man recover fully – don’t rush him into action with the risk of relapse or worse still aggravation of the previous injury…
