Leicester's Mendy out for five weeks, says Ranieri
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.
"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."
Despite struggling to mount a convincing defence of their English top flight title, Leicester, who are 13th in the league standings, have fared better in the Champions League, where they top Group G after winning both their games.
