Leicester: Foxes handed “really positive” Wilfred Ndidi injury update

Leicester: Foxes handed “really positive” Wilfred Ndidi injury update -Leicester City News

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

Labelled an ‘incredible player’ by his manager during his time at the King Power Stadium, the 25-year-old suffered a hamstring injury prior to the international break.

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.

The Verdict: Good news at last

Rodgers seems to be on thin ice at Leicester, with Monday seemingly a must-win after six successive league defeats.

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.
