Vardy ruled out of Spurs game but won't require surgery

Vardy ruled out of Spurs game but won't require surgery Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has been ruled out of this weekend’s game against Tottenham. The Belfast Telegraph reports that the striker will miss the game as he continues to recover from a groin injury. The striker sat out of the midweek game against Fulham and could also be out of action for next week’s visit to Crystal Palace. It had been suggested that the club could consider surgery to try and speed up the player’s recovery but that no longer appears to be an option. Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Claude Puel admitted that the club needs to be patience in their approach with the striker. “Jamie won’t be available. We will protect him, he has a little pain and I hope he can recover after 10 days. If we push him perhaps it will be a big injury and I want to protect him. I hope we can have Jamie for Crystal Palace, but I am not sure. We will see if he will improve his feeling and see when we can use him.” Vardy has been struggling with injuries on and off for some time now and they finally appear to have got the better of him. The 31-year-old has made nine starts for the Foxes in the Premier League this season and scored five times for Puel’s men.

Claude Puel (French pronunciation: [klod pɥɛl]; born 2 September 1961) is a French football manager and former player who is currently the manager of Premier League club Leicester City.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel admits he is unsure if striker Jamie Vardy requires surgery on a troublesome groin injury.

Vardy scored in Leicester's Premier League defeat of Watford on Saturday but has been playing through the pain.

The former England striker is a doubt for Wednesday's trip to Fulham, which is a reunion with former Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri, who won the 2015-16 title at the club.

And Puel is unsure whether Vardy will be able to take his place in the Leicester squad as they seek to extend a five-match unbeaten run in the league.

"I will see tomorrow," Puel told reporters on Monday. "I cannot say which players have a problem but I do not know at the moment my starting players in two days.

Vardy struggling with groin problem ahead of Fulham clash Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy is struggling for fitness ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League match against Fulham, according to a report on the Leicester Mercury. The striker managed to find the back of the net from the penalty spot in the 2-0 victory over Watford on Saturday but was substituted in the second half. Manager Claude Puel confirmed that the Englishman is struggling with an ongoing groin problem and said that he is not sure if he will be fit enough to play in London. Puel said: “He (Vardy) felt something and we will discuss with the medical staff. I don’t know (if he needs surgery). It is a balance to know his feeling.” “Tomorrow will be another day. It will be for Jamie and other players to see how they feel.” “I don’t know who will be available for this important game. Other players must be ready in their minds to play and replace another team-mate.” Wes Morgan was also spotted limping following the victory at the King Power Stadium and may be forced to sit out the trip to face Claudio Ranieri’s side. The Foxes will be hoping that Vardy does not need surgery on the issue but he will be continued to be assessed further tomorrow.
