Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi has been hit with a fresh injury setback. The Nigerian international twisted his ankle during training.
Ndidi hasn’t appeared for Leicester City since suffering a knee injury in a match against Rennes in the UEFA Europa Conference League in March. He was sidelined for a final couple of months of last season due to the injury.
Ndidi has yet to make an appearance for Leicester City in pre-season, despite returning to training with the rest of his teammates earlier this month.
Foxes manager, Brendan Rodgers revealed that the 25-year-old sustained an ankle injury while exercising at the club’s pre-season camp. He is expected to be ready to return to training next week after undergoing a scan.
“We’ve got one or two knocks,” Rodgers told LCFC TV. “Wilf [Ndidi] twisted his ankle in training a few days ago. We don’t think it’s too serious.
“It’s a high ankle sprain, so he had a scan on it and it’ll hopefully be okay. We’ve just looked after him really, he won’t be involved at the weekend, but of course, hopefully, next week at some point he’ll be back training”
