Leicester City manager, Claude Peul has confessed that he would gravely miss Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi for The Foxes’ English Premier League clash with West Ham United.
Heading into Saturday’s home fixture with The Hammers, Puel said the injury copped by Ndidi last weekend added another victim to the club’s long list of crocked players.
Ndidi has already been ruled out for six weeks, which puts him in doubt for the World Cup, but Puel says the immediate worry for him is not having the lad available to battle West Ham.
The former Racing Genk of Belgium midfielder is one of nine Leicester stars that will not be on parade at King Power Stadium, following the injury he sustained last weekend against Crystal Palace.
However, Puel did not shed any light on the hamstring injury suffered last weekend by Ndidi and did not state whether the midfielder will be fit for the 2018 World Cup.
Puel said: ”There’s an ankle problem with [Robert] Huth, [Shinji] Okazaki, [Kasper] Schmeichel, and [Ben] Chilwell in training.
‘‘[Matty] James has had tendon surgery. It’s a hamstring strain for [Wilfred] Ndidi and [Daniel] Amartey and [Marc] Albrighton is suspended.”
