Leicester City manager Claude Puel insists he is unaware whether Jamie Vardy will need surgery to recover from his groin injury.
The Premier League winner has been suffering from a long term groin injury and had to be subbed off in Leicester’s 2-0 win over Watford in the Premier League. The injury list is getting bigger for Puel with times passing and Vardy could now miss the Fulham game.
The English international had a surgery on his groin back in 2016 and the injury aggravated during the World Cup. He managed to keep it under control but it seems it has again come back to haunt him.
On being asked about Vardy’s condition Puel answered, “To tell you the truth for the moment I don’t know my team because I have some problems with different players.
“I will see tomorrow, I cannot say which players have a problem but I do not know at the moment my starting players (for a game) in two days.
“We will see (about Vardy). I don’t know for the moment. I know he felt something but we will see with him and my medical staff.
“I don’t know. It’s a balance to know his feelings step by step.
“Tomorrow will be another day, it will be for Jamie and for all the other players that feel something (to say how they feel). I don’t know the players that are available for this game.
“It’s an important game and I hope the other players will be ready in their minds to play and replace another team-mate.”
