Wilfred Ndidi’s season may be over – Brendan Rodgers
After his side’s 2-1 Premier League victory over Brentford on Sunday, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers released injury report on the injury sustained by Wilfred Ndidi.
The Northern Irishman is concerned that the midfielder will miss the rest of the 2021-2022 season, due to a knee injury sustained in the second half of the Europa Conference League match against Rennes.
Ndidi was expected to return to play before the middle of April, with Rodgers previously claiming that he would be out for a few weeks, but it appears like a new timeline has been established.
The Nigerian international has missed six games due to injury this season and was unavailable for selection in three more games due to his commitments with the Super Eagles at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
In quotes relayed by LeicestershireLive, Rodgers said : “Wilf is not so good. We’re just waiting for a second opinion on that but whether he’ll play for the rest of the season I’m not sure. It’s a real shame for us”.
The Nath Boys academy product has been a notable performer for the Foxes in European competition this season, scoring twice and assisting once in eight outings in the Europa League and Conference League combined.
