The injury ruled Ndidi out of the ill-fated 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Ghana in March. It also ensured that the Nigerian midfielder missed Nigeria’s first two Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

“I have been working my way back,” Ndidi told LCFC.

“I went away for two weeks and came back early. The body has already adapted to it. It’s good. For me, I’m in a much better place.

“It’s good to be back with the lads and seeing all the lads. We’re still waiting for some of the lads but it will be good when everyone comes back and we can look forward to what we want to achieve.”

“The training is just to get the body toned up. As soon as the body gets ready for it, the games coming up are just another way of getting more fitness and getting us ready for more games coming.

“I just feel training is getting the body ready for the games ahead. The first game is to get game-time and gain more fitness.”
