Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has ruled out Wilfred Ndidi from Sunday’s Premier League clash with Leeds United, Saturday PUNCH reports.

    Ndidi suffered a slight tear in his thigh in Leicester City’s 1-1 draw against Everton in a Premier League game on Wednesday.

    He is expected to be out of action for at least eight to 10 days, according to Rodgers.

    The 24-year-old was handed his 11th league appearance of the season but only played for 42 minutes before suffering the injury and was replaced by Papy Mendy.

    “He’s just got a slight tear, so he will be out for eight to 10 days. Sometimes those can be a lot longer than that, so we’re fortunate,” Rodgers said during his pre-match conference.

Ndidi has been struggling with various injuries since the start of the season, which has limited his playing time to 15 games across all competitions.

    The midfielder recently returned from a groin injury he suffered in September 2020, which ruled him out of action for more than three months.
