Ndidi’s return thrills Rodgers

LEICESTER CITY manager Brendan Rodgers is pleased to have Wilfred Ndidi back from injury after the Nigerian featured as a substitute in Leicester’s Europa League 1-1 draw against Russian club Spartak Moscow on Thursday night.

Ndidi has not made an appearance for the Foxes since picking up a hamstring injury in the 2-2 home draw against Burnley on September 25.

But his return on Thursday thrilled the Foxes gaffer who insists that his defensive solidity will be invaluable for City going forward.

“He (Ndidi) is very, very important for us, from a defensive perspective,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.

“He covers a lot of space. In those defensive moments, you need that player to get back in. He’s a very, very important player for us and it’s great to have him back.”

Leicester City will face Leeds United in their next Premier League fixture at the Elland Road on Sunday.
