Leicester lose Ndidi’s effort for 12 weeks

Leicester lose Ndidi's effort for 12 weeks


Leicester’s Wilfred Ndidi will have surgical procedure on the groin injury he suffered in Sunday’s win over Burnley.

The 23-year-old will be out for as much as 12 weeks after the procedure on the adductor injury, which will possibly take place on Saturday.

The Nigerian had been running as a makeshift main defender in the absence of the damaged Jonny Evans.

” It’s simply unfortunate – it’s come right off the bone,” said boss Brendan Rodgers. “He’s a substantial gamer for us.”

He added: “I’m certain he’ll make a truly good recovery and we’ll invite him when he returns, however there’s no question he’s a miss.”

Leicester have won both of their league matches this season, to leave them leading of the Premier League on goal difference.
