Ndidi Could Be on the Leicester Bench for 12 Weeks

Leicester City may suffer a massive blow, as Wilfred Ndidi could be out for up to 12 weeks with an abductor injury.

The Nigerian international, who was filling up as a defenseman in the absence of Jonny Evans, slammed into Sunday’s Premier League win over Burnley.

Ndidi was then forced to miss Leicester’s 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat by Arsenal in the middle of the week on account of the injury.

And now, Boss Brendan Rodgers reveals that the player might need surgery.

Ndidi was used in the central defense for the first two games as Leicester, with Papy Mendy playing Ndidi’s regular middle position, but the surgery could see him missing almost the first half of his side’s campaign.

“It’s an abductor injury, it could have come off the bone, which could have been a nasty injury,” said Rodgers, who claimed top spot in the Premier League with back-to-back wins over West Brom and Burnley, brings Dailymail.

“We’re going to wait to see if he needs surgery, if that’s going to be 12 weeks.”

Rodgers’ side will face a massive test against Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
