His return to competition has been postponed for a few more days, Brendan Rodgers said on Thursday evening. “Grandpa Mendy has a problem with his knee so he may struggle for the weekend but everyone should be fine. “, announced the Foxes technician.
Nampalys felt pain after a duel
“It was just a clash of knees in training. The doctor and the medical team said this morning that it would be very unlikely that he would be involved this weekend, but hopefully he will be back after that. “, he added to explain the conditions in which the 2021 African champion was injured.
Besides Nampalys Mendy, Wilfred Ndidi should also miss the meeting. “He came back from international duty with a strained hamstring. He recovered well but he felt some pain at half time of the game (against Nottingham) and he was in a bit of pain so he could miss a few weeks. “, also announced the club.

This Saturday, the team travels to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth, as part of the 10th day of the Premier League.
