Leicester Boss Claude Puel Confirms Wilfred Ndidi Injury, It’s Bad News For Club And Country

Problem for Leicester, problem for Nigeria. Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi picked up a knock in the 51st minute of his team’s heavy 5-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The 21-year-old had to be replaced by Aleksandar Dragovic.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has confirmed that the Nigeria international has suffered a hamstring injury and hopes it doesn’t not ruin the midfielder’s chances of a world cup spot with Nigeria.


Puel in a post-match reaction with the Foxes’ official website said: “I hope it is not a serious injury for Ndidi and I hope he can play in the World Cup. “We will see. It is a hamstring injury. I hope it is not serious of course because it is an important moment.”

Ndidi has been a key figure in the Super Eagles set-up who secured qualification to the 2018 World Cup with an unbeaten run in a group that consisted of Zambia, AFCON holders Cameroon and Algeria.
