Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers has gladly revealed that the operation on Wilfred Ndidi’s knee was successful, but the 23-year-old is still a number of weeks from returning to contention.
The Nigeria international suffered a knee injury in training ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg clash against Aston Villa and is expected to be out for around three or four weeks.
Now the operation on Ndidi’s meniscus has been completed and Rodgers says he is now back in at Belvoir Drive and has commenced the recovery process.
“It went very well,” Rodgers told the national media on Friday, ahead of Saturday’s Premier League visit of Southampton to King Power Stadium.
“It was a good operation. He’s now back in and straight into his recovery. Something around that (three or four weeks). Sometimes it can be sooner, sometimes it can’t be.”
