Leicester boss Rodgers confirms Ndidi’s ‘incredible’ recovery ahead of West Ham
Brendan Rodgers has this evening provided an update on the fitness of Wilfred Ndidi, ahead of the club’s meeting with West Ham United.
The Foxes are set to welcome David Moyes’ men to the King Power stadium tomorrow night, as part of the Premier League’s midweek fixture list.
Leicester will enter the matchup desperate for a bounce-back display, on the back of an alarming dip in form of late.
Rodgers’ outfit are winless in their last 3 outings across all competitions.
After falling to a shock 2-1 loss at home to Southampton two weeks ago, Leicester were again put to the sword by a side battling relegation this past weekend.
A meeting with struggling Burnley at Turf Moor eventually saw the Clarets run out 2-1 winners, courtesy of second-half strikes from Chris Wood and Ashley Westwood.
Leicester’s hopes of getting things back on track with a 3-point haul tomorrow night, though, have today been boosted by some huge news on the personnel front.
Speaking in his pre-West Ham press conference a short time ago, Brendan Rodgers was asked for a fitness update on his squad.
The main talking point surrounded sidelined midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, who’s absence has been sorely felt in the Foxes’ last two outings.
Amazingly, though, despite having only undergone surgery on a knee issue two weeks ago, the Nigerian midfielder is already in line to make a return to the pitch.
Rodgers confirmed that his side’s midfield enforcer has made an ‘incredible recovery’, and could yet feature tomorrow night:
‘Yes, theres a great chance hell be in the squad for tomorrow. Well see how he is from today.’
‘Hes made an incredible recovery. I think thats the thing with the type of operation he had, people will recover in different timescales. For Wilf it was 11 days.’
‘Hes been out on the pitch, hes had all the tests. Its a great testament to him and our medical team, the work thats gone in to getting him fit. Hes available, we think.’
