Wilfred Ndidi will return to action in time for the new Premier League season, according to a medical expert.
Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers had informed that Ndidi sprained his ankle in a recent training session, but the Nigerian midfielder is now touted to return from the injury in time for the Foxes first game of the 2022-23 campaign.
Megasportsarena.com reports that Ndidi, 25, who recently returned to training after he missed the last three months of 2021-22 with an MCL injury, will be back before the new season begins in August.
Medical expert Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site and has a background in injury and data analysis.
Dinnery claims that media reports that Ndidi is facing an extended period out are nonsense.
Rodgers seemed to allay fears of a serious injury that would keep him out long term.
“A serious setback at this stage would be a major blow for the midfielder.
“A high ankle sprain indicates it is a little bit more severe than a run-of-the-mill ankle sprain. But the reporting of the injury doesn’t match with what Rodgers has said in terms of his post-match comments.
His expectation was that he could be training with the squad this week. He has an outside chance for one of the two remaining friendly games.
“Either way, you’d expect him to be back for game week one in the Premier League.”
