Rodgers says not in a hurry to return Ndidi to action

By Omobolaji Oyegunle, LONDON

Leicester boss, Brenda Rodgers has revealed that the club is being extra cautious over the return of Wilfred Ndidi.
Ndidi staged a remarkable recovery from surgery in January, returning to action just 12 days after a piece of floating bone was removed from cartilage in his knee.
However, after playing the full 90 minutes of the Foxes’ Carabo Cup semi-final, second-leg defeat against Aston Villa, he suffered a reaction and has since been sidelined.
The 23-year- old is back in training and may yet be available for today’s(Friday) Premier League game at Norwich.
But asked whether the club were now being extra cautious over a return, Todgers replied: ‘Yeah, we have to be because we don’t want to lose him.
“When he came back for those games, it was deemed he was fit. I’ve big trust here in the medical team. They’re fantastic, and he felt good, but he just had a slight reaction from that.
“So we want to just be sure of where he is at in terms of his fitness”.
