Irish professional football manager, Brendan Rodgers, has ruled out Nigerian International Wilfred Ndidi, Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans ahead of the Premier League visit of Leeds United on Sunday.
Rodgers said inside the King Power Centre at LCFC Training Ground, that Ndidi was ruled out for two matches due to a hamstring.
Ndidi, Nigeria midfielder, is likely to be absent for just over a week, while Northern Ireland centre-back Evans is in contention to tackle Leeds on Filbert Way, Rodgers said.
Rodgers said it is unfortunate that Ndidi will be out, but “sometimes hamstrings can be much longer than that. Jonny’s fine. It’s been an ongoing issue with him for a little while, but he’ll be fine.”
The Northern Irishman told the media that Jamie is progressing really well six days post-operation,” he said, “we are on schedule to meet the deadline we’ve got. We were looking to hopefully get him training towards 10 days after the operation, so he’s on course for that. We’re just looking closely at his rehabilitation. He’s progressed really well over these last few days. We haven’t earmarked a game yet (for a return), but we’ll look more closely at that next week.”
