Leicester manager Rodgers confirms Vardy out of Man Utd clash

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says Jamie Vardy will miss Saturday's clash with Manchester United.

The Foxes will be hoping to hurt United's chances of finishing in the top-four by winning at the King Power.

But they will have to do it without veteran striker Vardy, with Rodgers confirming: "He's [Vardy] certainly not ready for the weekend. We'll assess it over the next week."

Rodgers will also be without midfielder Wilfried Ndidi for the remainder of this season.

He added: "He [Ndidi] has had surgery and will be looking to get back in June. Papy Mendy has come in, we thought he was leaving last summer but has come back in and he's always been professional."
