The Nigeria international has been ruled out for at least a month, and that has got a couple of Leicester City fans worried.
Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed before his side’s 1-1 draw against Aston Villa that Ndidi picked up a knock in training, and will need to undergo surgery that will keep him out of action for a few weeks.
“Wilf took a knock in training yesterday, which unfortunately means he might need a slight operation tomorrow. That’ll put him out for a few weeks, but it’s not overly serious, so hopefully, going into February, he’ll be fit and ready to go again, Rodgers said.
Ndidi’s absence will be a big miss for Leicester as he is one Foxes best players this season. Rodgers’ side have surpassed expectations this season with Leicester sitting in second place on the Premier League table, and Ndidi has played a major role in it. With his absence for the next one month, Foxes fans have expressed their feelings on social media.
Do we have a spy spoiler in camp or what? Who does this in training what the enemy couldn't do in the battle field. Get well soon mate

He has been over used. Wilf needed the rest anyways. Thankfully he'll come back better and stronger

Ndidi will miss about five games for Leicester but could be back for the clash against Chelsea at the start of February.
