FOXES MENDY IS OFF FOR FIVE WEEKS
Leicester City midfielder Nampalys Mendy will be out of action for around five weeks after undergoing an surgery on his ankle, manager Claudio Ranieri has said.
The 24-year-old joined the Foxes from French club Nice in July but was substituted on his Premier League debut against Arsenal in August after landing awkwardly to injure his ankle.
“Mendy was unlucky. In the last training session he had a little fracture of the bone. I think today (Monday) he is in surgery just to clean this little fragment of bone out,” Ranieri told the club’s website (www.lcfc.com). “It depends how long, it could be four weeks or five weeks. I don’t know.” Ranieri confirmed forward Shinji Okazaki, who was not included in the squad for Saturday’s league defeat at Chelsea, will be fit.”
