Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has provided an update on the match-fitness of Wilfred Ndidi after the midfielder was spotted training with the rest of the squad ahead their weekend encounter with Liverpool.
Ndidi has been on the sidelines for the Foxes with an adductor injury since September, but he resumed first-team training on Wednesday.
Rodgers has however now stated that the holding midfielder will not be available for match action for at least a couple of weeks.
Speaking in the virtual pre-match presser ahead their clash with reigning champions Liverpool, the 47-year-old gaffer gave positive injury updates on the team’s regulars – including the Nigerian – who have been out for several months.
“Ricardo’s in training with the group, which is great news, and he’ll most probably play in a reserve game next week. He’s progressing really well,” Rodgers said.
“Wilf (Ndidi) is out on the field. He still has a number of weeks to go, but he’s progressing well. Söyüncü, likewise, is maybe a few weeks away, but training with the squad.”
Ndidi has made only two league appearances for table-toppers Leicester this season.
