Wilfred Ndidi returns to Leicester's training ahead of Liverpool match
Leicester City's defensive midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has returned to training after two months he was sidelined with a knock in a 4-2 defeat to Burnley in a Premier League game.
His return will be a boost for Leicester's manager Brendan Rodgers who had consistently used Wilfred Ndidi in the number four role before his injury.
Rodgers might not feature Wilfred Ndidi in his starting lineup ahead of Liverpool's clash in the Premier League as he needs more time to recover from his injury fully.
Brendan Rodgers heaped praises on Nampalys Mendy over taking Wilfred Ndidi's role
In the absence of Wilfred Ndidi, Brendan Rodgers had used Nampalys Mendy as his best option in the number four position.
Nampalys Mendy has fitted in well in the role and manager Brendan Rogers had heaped praises on him.
Nampalys Mendy has been a good replacement of Ndidi since he was injured
“He is performing to the level the club wanted when they brought him in,” Rodgers told the club website.
“He's a defensive midfield player, tactically very good, understands the role, and does a lot of dirty work for the team.
“Of course, before he’s played with Wilfred, who’s something similar beside him and it’s probably where both of those players need someone creative beside them.
“I think because of Wilf’s form, certainly since I’ve been here, he’s been so consistent, and it's been difficult for Papy to play, but it really shows you the mark of the guy how well he has trained, how concentrated he has been.
"He never lost his focus and was always there if an opportunity came to give his very best.
With the tight schedule in the Premier League and Europa League, Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to rotate the two defensive midfielders to avoid sustaining any injury from fatigue.
