Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has disclosed that his side will miss the presence of Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi for few weeks.
The defensive midfielder is set to undergo minor surgery on his injured ankle and he’s set to miss weeks of action as a result.
Speaking after Leicester Carabao cup first leg draw at home to Aston Villa, Rodgers said he’s side is less aggressive without the former Genk man.
Rodgers also praised Ndidi’s ideal replacement Hamza Choudhury who came on in the second half of the game at the kingpower stadium.
“It’s set up perfectly. We look forward to the second leg. Hamza Choudhury made a huge difference, it’s my fault that I didn’t start him tonight. We could see that we needed him and he gave us our identity back. Wilfred Ndidi is so good for us, he’s colossal, and we were too slow and not aggressive without him or Hamza.” Rodgers said.
Kelechi Iheanacho scored a second half equaliser to make sure the Foxes avoid a defeat going into the second leg at Vila Park.
