Brendan Rodgers Excited About Ndidi’s Return

Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers has declared that Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi could be available for the Nottingham Forest clash.

Ndidi was absent for Nigeria during the last international break as he pulled out due to a knock. He had been named in the squad that played against Algeria on Tuesday.

According to Rodgers, he could be available on Monday for a Premier League match against Nottingham Forest.

“We had Wilfred Ndidi come back early,” Rodgers confirmed on Friday. “He’s looking really positive and trained this morning, so hopefully he will be fine.

“Dennis Praet had a few days where he was struggling, but he came through the last few days well and looked good in training, so we’re okay.

“This is a new game, a new season, and the players will be ready for it, and we’ll look to get the result that we want.

“It’s always difficult that first year back in. Steve [Cooper] has done a brilliant job of getting them into the Premier League. To then create a cohesive unit and team with so many new faces is a challenge.

“It’s a great game for us to look forward to. We’re very determined. The attitude is there and the energy is there – for us to hopefully kick-start our season.”
