Leicester Vs Slavia: Rodgers Announces Worrying Injury News

Leicester will not have in-form star James Maddison available as they bid to reach the Europa League last 16 on Thursday night.

The England hopeful, 24, scored his 11th goal of the season in Sunday's 2-1 Premier League win at Aston Villa before limping off.

Boss Brendan Rodgers confirmed: “He won’t be available for the game on Thursday and he’s in consultation with our doctors and some specialists.  

“Then we’ll see where we’re at.  

“We don’t believe he needs more surgery.  

“It’s irritable where he has had the issue before and we are getting all the info.  

“He has been to London with our club doctor to get an opinion and he is down there getting another opinion so we can collate all the information after that.  

“We are having to get the specialist opinion on it and formulate a plan for his recovery and reintegration into the team.”
