Injured, Ndidi Absent to defend Leicester until the end of the season


Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is ruled out for the remainder of the season after sustaining a knee injury in his side’s loss to Stade Rennes in the Conference League, before the international break.

The Nigeria international has undergone surgery and is expected to return to action in June. This was said by the Foxes coach Brendan Rodgers in a press conference on Thursday (31/3).

The 25-year-old midfielder has also missed defending Nigeria in the playoff match against Ghana, Wednesday (30/3).

“It’s a shame, but he will be preparing for next season,” said Rodgers.

“He has been a brilliant player for me during my time here. He has a serious injury that requires surgery and he will likely recover in June,” he continued.

Ndidi joined Leicester from Belgian side Genk in January 2017. He has played 31 games for the club in all competitions this season.

Leicester, currently, are in 10th place in the Premier League standings. The Foxes will visit the headquarters of Manchester United, this weekend. (Ant/OL-1)
