EPL: Ndidi Out For 4-5 Weeks
The time Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi will spend in the treatment room has been confirmed, BSNsports.com.ng can report.
The energetic player was not among the players invited by Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr for the doubleheader match against the Central African Republic.
The Nigerian picked up a hamstring injury in the home 2-2 draw with Burnley just over a week ago and a scan has revealed the full extent of the injury.
The 24-year-old missed Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace as well as their 1-0 Europa League defeat to Legia Warsaw last Thursday through suspension.
Manager of the club Brendan Rogers has confirmed that Ndidi will spend up to 4-5 weeks on the sideline.
“Wilf did it in the Burnley game, which was unfortunate.
“It could be four to five weeks before he is back, we’ll see how it goes,” he said.
Ndidi may not return now until the start of next month, which means he will miss the Premier League clashes against Manchester United, Brent,ford and Arsenal, and the Europa League double-header against Spartak Moscow.
