Super Eagles midfielder Wilfried Ndidi will be out of action for a few weeks according to Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers.
Ndidi suffered a knock in training on Tuesday and will miss the first leg of the EFL Cup semi finals against Aston Villa later tonight and Saturday’s clash with Southampton.
Ahead of their EFL Cup semi-final first leg against Aston Villa, Rodgers revealed “Wilf took a knock in training yesterday, which unfortunately means he might need a slight operation tomorrow. That’ll put him out for a few weeks, but it’s not overly serious, so hopefully, going into February, he’ll be fit and ready to go again.”
Leicester City fans will hope the 23-year-old is back in action as soon as possible on account of the stability he brings to the team.
Ndidi, who was a shock omission in FIFpro Africa XI at the CAF Awards on Tuesday, will hope to return in the same rich vein of form he has enjoyed since the start of this season.
