Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is disappointed midfielder Wilfred Ndidi won’t feature in Thursday’s (today) Europa League clash against Polish club Legia Warsaw, reports Completesports.
Ndidi is suspended for the game following his late red card against Napoli earlier this month.
Rodgers, though, is confident that his side will adapt to the challenges of playing without such a unique player.
“It’s impossible to find what we have in Wilf,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.
“We have good players, but specifically the job he does in breaking up the play and defending in the box, he’s irreplaceable, but we have lots of good players.
“You have to find a way. Earlier on in the season, we brought [Boubakary] Soumaré into the squad because he gives us that physicality. Wilf’s a fabulous player and hopefully he’s be okay for the weekend.”
