Leicester City coach, Brendan Rodgers has called Wilfred Ndidi a phenomenal footballer for his remarkable recovery from his recent injury.
The Nigerian underwent surgery on his knee and has missed the team’s last 3 matches, games they have failed to win.
Speaking recently, Brendan hailed the midfielder for his fast recovery and hinted that he might be listed in tomorrow’s EPL game vs West Ham United.
He, however, added that he’ll take things one step at a time with the youngster so things do not get out of hand.
His words, “Yes, there’s a great chance he’ll be in the squad for tomorrow,”
“We’ll see how he is from today. He’s made an incredible recovery. I think that’s the thing with the type of operation he had, people will recover in different timescales. For Wilf it was 11 days.
“He’s been out on the pitch, he’s had all the tests. It’s a great testament to him and our medical team, the work that’s gone in to getting him fit. He’s available, we think.”
“We’ll give it another period of time just to make sure that he feels good and feels right in himself.
“He wasn’t one that we wanted to rush, but over the course of the last number of days, he’s been fantastic.
“He’s been in duels, he’s had the test and if there was going to be any effects, it would have taken place over the last few days. He’s come through it really well.”
“He’s a real colossal player for us. He allows to defend and to defend forward. He covers a lot of space for our attacking players and there are not too many players better than him who do that job.
“He’s a phenomenal player. To have him back early is a huge boost for us. He has been a miss, no doubt.”
