Vardy injury latest with Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers hopeful

As Jamie Vardy recovers from a knee injury, Leicester City hopes to have him back in training before the international break ends.

Nearly two weeks after returning from a two-month layoff due to a hamstring problem, City’s number nine was injured in the win over Leeds.

Vardy is expected to be available for City’s upcoming April schedule, which begins with a trip to Manchester United.

Even though Wilfred Ndidi’s injury may have overshadowed his comments on Jamie Vardy, manager Brendan Rodgers did give an update on the striker following Sunday’s 2-1 victory over Brentford.

He said: “The likes of Jamie, it’s a week to a couple of weeks, so that’s looking much healthier for us,” backing up what he said two days prior, which was: “Hopefully Jamie should be back training with us within the next week or so, which is great news, and he might be not be too far away after the international break.”

Another player, Marc Albrighton, appears to be on the verge of returning. Last week, less than 10 minutes into the team’s 2-1 loss to Rennes, the winger aggravated an existing groin injury.

“Marc hopefully should be back just after the international break if he’s not back by then,” Rodgers said after the win over Brentford.
