Ndidi returns for Leicester City after 67 days out injured

Posted : 06 March 2024

Wilfred Ndidi made a notable comeback as he was included in Leicester City's matchday squad for their Championship encounter against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night. The central midfielder had been sidelined due to a serious muscle injury, causing him to miss action for the Foxes since the beginning of the year and resulting in his absence from the Super Eagles squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Before the visit to Sunderland, Ndidi had not played competitively for Leicester City since December 29, 2023, when he featured for 69 minutes in a 2-0 victory against Cardiff City. After a 67-day hiatus and missing thirteen consecutive games across all competitions, Ndidi made a comeback by entering the pitch in the 72nd minute, replacing Yunus Akgün in midfield.

Initially expected to be sidelined for three months, Ndidi's early return to action is a positive development for Leicester City. In the managerial decisions of Enzo Maresca, Kelechi Iheanacho was brought on as the second substitution, replacing Jamie Vardy, who ultimately secured the victory by heading home from close range in the thirteenth minute.

Ndidi's return provides Leicester City with renewed momentum in their pursuit of automatic promotion to the Premier League. His presence on the field is anticipated to boost the team's performance and contribute significantly to their campaign.
