Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has provided a ‘really positive’ injury update on Wilfred Ndidi ahead of Monday night’s clash against Nottingham Forest.
The Lowdown: Tweaked hamstring
He was forced off during the 6-2 defeat to Tottenham last month and was unable to feature for Nigeria as a result. The midfielder was sent home from international duty, but it looks as if he could recover in time to play some part in the East Midlands derby tomorrow night.
The Latest: Rodgers’ comments on Ndidi
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, as relayed by the club’s official website on Friday, Rodgers said that Ndidi was ‘looking really positive’ and was hopeful that ‘he will be fine’ for the Forest clash.
The Leicester boss also said that Dennis Praet has ‘looked good in training’ after struggling for a few days.
Rodgers in or Rodgers out?
The Verdict: Good news at last
Therefore, having Ndidi fit and available can only be viewed as good news as Leicester look for a first victory of the 2022/23 campaign.
Ndidi may not have had the best starts to the season, but he has been a vital member of the squad in recent years and ranks highly when it comes to interceptions made this term (as per WhoScored), so having him in the squad would be good news.
Given the Foxes’ current predicament, any bit of good news ought to be welcomed warmly.
