Leicester City

Rodgers confirms good news over winger

29th March 2019, 10:13 by Simon Barlow

Marc Albrighton and Daniel Amartey are out of Leicester's home clash with Bournemouth on Saturday, but the winger could return soon.

Brendan Rodgers' side go in search of a third Premier League victory in a row with the manager reporting that all 21 of the club's players that were called up for international duty this month have returned in good condition.

"They have all come back fit and well," said the Northern Irishman.

"I thought all the boys did really well. Youri [Tielemans] scored his first goal for Belgium. Ben [Chilwell] and Harry [Maguire] were very good.

"Jonny Evans got his third international goal which was great to see as a Northern Irishman."

Rodgers revealed that Albrighton, who was involved in training on Thursday, could make his comeback from a hamstring injury before the end of the season.

"He will be available at some point," the Foxes manager added.

"He's worked very, very hard during his time out.

"He's out on the pitch now and doing his rehabilitation with the guys out there. He's worked tirelessly and hopefully, before the end of the season, he'll get some game time."

Midfielder Amartey has been out for the past five months following the broken ankle he suffered against West Ham in late October.
