Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro has come out to explain the injury suffered by Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi ahead of their friendly match against Algeria. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, his connection with Leicester City made his fitness coach know that Ndidi complained about a knock in the last match vs Tottenham.
Jose added that the midfielder trained without intensity recently as he felt something in his hamstring.
His words, “Because we have that connection with Leicester [City], their fitness coach said to our fitness coach that he [Ndidi] complained in the last match [against Tottenham Hotspur]”
“When Ndidi came, he did training without intensity, a small training but with conditions, but he kept feeling something in his hamstring.”
“After yesterday’s session, I thought it was better not to use him. I don’t want to go use a player in a friendly match only to see him sustain more injury. It is for that reason he went back to Leicester today [Thursday], for him to recover more faster.”
