Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare has stated that Nigeria Midfield enforcer, Wilfried Ndidi is in good shape ahead of Monday’s clash against West Brom in the English Premier League.
Shakespeare disclosed this in his press conference today. Ndidi has undergone a medical test at Leicester on Tuesday after he was forced out of the Nigeria’s world cup qualifier against Zambia.
Ndidi ‘s stat at Leicester City since he joined in January has been amazing.
Ndidi limped off at the end of Nigeria’s 1-0 victory over Zambia last weekend, in a win that also secured the Super Eagles’ qualification for the World Cup finals in Russia.
“I am hopeful, we are now getting a fully fit squad back. There will be competition for places. We need that. We only have a few injuries now,” Shakespeare told Leicester Mercury.
The Nigeria midfielder has started almost every Leicester game this season and has also become a regular under his National team Coach, Gernot Rohr.
Shakespeare also believes his side are on the right track to start a winning streak but insists the Foxes must adapt well during games.
Leicester City suffered defeats to Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool but beat Brighton and drew with Huddersfield and Bournemouth away from home in their opening seven games to record five points from a possible of 21.
“If we want to change shape and be adaptable during games it is nice to have that,” he added.
“We have been in all the games this season. Of course, there are some games the opposition have dominated possession, but ultimately we have given everyone a game.
