Leicester City will be without Nigeria international, Wilfred Ndidi, for a few weeks after manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed on Thursday that the midfielder had a hamstring strain, Abbeylivenetwork.com reports.
Ndidi started for the Foxes in Monday’s 4-0 triumph over Nottingham Forest at the King Power Stadium but was substituted at half-time with Boubakary Soumare taking his place.
The Nigerian was initially expected to be fit for Leicester’s Premier League clash against Bournemouth this Saturday.
“Wilfred Ndidi will probably be out for a little bit,” Rodgers told a press conference on Thursday.
“He came back from international duty with a hamstring strain. He recovered well but he felt it at half-time in the game and he was a little sore, so he might miss a few weeks.”
Ndidi has struggled with injuries in recent times. He missed the latter part of last season with a knee problem.
