Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is going through as much as three months out due to an abductor harm, supervisor Brendan Rodgers stated.
Ndidi was not concerned in Leicester’s 2-Zero loss to Arsenal within the English League Cup after getting damage within the 4-2 win over Burnley within the Premier League on Saturday.
“We are just waiting to hear more on that, but he could be anything between six and 12 weeks,” Rodgers stated about Ndidi after the Arsenal game.
“It is an abductor injury — it may have come off the bone, which could be a nasty injury. So we will wait to see if needs an operation. If it does, then it will be 12 weeks.” Ndidi has been filling in at middle back firstly of the season whereas Leicester was with out the suspended Jonny Evans and the injured Wes Morgan.
Leicester struggled with out Ndidi, a midfield anchorman and organizer, when he was out via harm for a spell last season.
