Brendan Rodgers

Leicester City Manager Brendan Rodgers hopes that Wilfred Ndidi will be eligible for selection when they play Zorya Luhansk, as he is expected to miss their Europa League game against Sporting Braga on Thursday night.

Ndidi has been out of action after he sustained a groin injury to Burnley in September.

The Super Eagles midfielder has missed Leicester’s last 11 games.

Although Brendan Rodgers said the 23-year-old is recovering well, he admitted Ndidi will not feature for his side until their Europa League tie against Zorya in Ukraine on December 3.

“Timothy hasn’t travelled and we’ll see where he is for Monday,” Brendan Rodgers said in a pre-match press conference.

“Ndidi is progressing well and we’ll see where he is for the game in Ukraine. Soyuncu, we’ll see where he is in a few weeks.”
