Wilfred Ndidi’s wait for a Leicester City run-out goes on after the midfielder twisted his ankle in training, Megasportsarena.com understands.
Ndidi has not played for the Foxes since March, when a 50-50 challenge against Rennes left him needing surgery on his knee.
The recovery from the operation ruled him out for the final few months of last season, and while he returned to training with the rest of the group, he didn’t play against Notts County and now won’t feature against OH Leuven on Saturday.
City boss Brendan Rodgers has said that the Nigerian picked up the ankle injury in training at the club’s pre-season camp in Evian. Following a scan, it is hoped he will be able to return to training next week.
“We’ve got one or two knocks,” Rodgers told LCFC TV. “Wilf’s 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.
