Rodgers provides Leicester team news update

Ahead of the trip to Leeds, Brendan Rodgers has provided a team news update on his squad.

First up, Rodgers confirmed that Timothy Castagne, who missed the Foxes’ midweek Europa League win, has a hamstring issue and is likely to be out until after the upcoming international break:

“Timothy has tweaked his hamstring, hence the reason he didn’t travel, so he’ll probably be out until after the international break, which is a shame. “It’s not too bad, but it’ll keep him out for this next period.”

Jonny Evans also missed the trip to Greece, with Rodgers having this to say on the stopper post-Leeds:

“Jonny landed really awkwardly against Arsenal and he obviously played on and the back stiffened up a little bit.

“We wanted to give him every chance to play against AEK and he trained in the warm-up the night before, but he had to go in as he was suffering with his back.

“That meant we had to rejig it and Fuchsy (Christian Fuchs), who was planned not to play, we gave him 45 minutes, so we didn’t risk him any longer.”

And finally, the Leicester boss provided an update on long-term absentee, Ricardo Pereira:

“We took Ricardo out to continue with his rehabilitation,” the Northern Irishman confirmed. “He’s obviously getting close, but he won’t feature before the international break.”
