Leicester City Manager, Claude Puel, has confirmed that Wilfred Ndidi suffered a hamstring injury in the defeat at Crystal Palace which could put the midfielder’s World Cup in jeopardy.
The Leicester City midfielder limped off early in the second half in the 5-0 drubbing at Selhurst Park and had to be helped along the touchline and down the tunnel by one of City’s physio team.
Puel said that the 21-year-old’s injury would need to be assessed but hopes it will not harm his chances of impressing in Russia this summer.
“I hope it is not a serious injury for Ndidi and I hope he can play in the World Cup,” said Puel after the game. “All the scenarios today were bad for us.
“We will see (if he will make the World Cup). It is a hamstring injury. I hope it is not serious of course because it is an important moment for him.”
