Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers hailed the performance of Wilfred
Ndidi in his side’s 4-1 win against West Ham in the Premier League on
The Nigeria national-teamer made a miraculous recovery from a meniscus operation to be named in the matchday 18 and the initial plan was to introduce him off the bench in the second half.With Nampalys Mendy suffering an injury in the 34th
minute, Ndidi was called up as a replacement for the holding midfielder.
“It’s remarkable, really.We were thinking he could only
play 25-30 minutes,” Rodgers told reporters after the
game at the King Power Stadium.
“He is genetically blessed and he recovered very, very
well. And he was excellent.”
Leicester City failed to win any of their three matches
during Ndidi’s spell on the sidelines, losing to Southampton and Burnley in the Premier League and
playing a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa in the semifinal of the Carabao Cup.
