Big boost for Super Eagles as Ndidi returns to Leicester training

Iheanacho-Ndidi

Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, was pictured training with the rest of his team mates on Friday.

This news will come as a big boost for the Super Eagles.

Ndidi has not played since September after picking up a hamstring injury in their 2-2 draw against Burnley at the King Power Stadium.

As a result, he missed Nigeria’s doubleheader 2022 World Cup qualifying games against the Central African Republic early this month.

Leicester’s manager, Brendan Rodgers, revealed Ndidi would not return until next month’s international break.

However, it appears Ndidi has recovered earlier than scheduled after he was pictured in training with his teammates ahead of the Foxes clash against Arsenal.

Although he is likely to miss the game against the Gunners, he could be back for the trip to Elland Road next week.

This also means Ndidi could be available for Nigeria’s 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Cape Verde and Liberia in November, handing manager Gernot Rohr a massive boost.
