Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr is not losing sleep over the injury copped last weekend by Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Onyinye Ndidi, as the Franco-German buff believes the lad will recover in time to make his World Cup squad.
Though Leicester boss, Clause Puel also resorted to prayers in support of Ndidi, after the former Racing Genk of Belgium ace bowed out of a 5-0 loss away to Crystal Palace, Eagles’ media officer, Toyin Ibitoye says Rohr is not losing sleep over the matter.
Ibitoye explained that Rohr would have been informed officially by The Foxes had Ndidi been in doubt of making it to the World Cup and, since the Eagles gaffer has not received any call to that effect, he will not worry about the player’s chances of making it to Russia 2018.
Ibitoye’s revelation came soon after reports emerged that Ndidi went for a scan after getting injured against Palace in the Premier League on Saturday and is now awaiting results of the medical examination.
Reports also claimed The Foxes medical team contacted Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to inform them that the defensive midfielder will fit before the start of the World Cup.
An official disclosed: “Ndidi suffered a hamstring injury; he had done a scan and is waiting for feedback from the doctors.
“The focus is on how to get him ready for the World Cup, Leicester City say they are going to do their best. He is very determined to play at the World Cup.
“The Leicester City physiotherapist is in touch with the Nigeria Football Federation and informed them that he will be fit before the start of the World Cup.”
