Puel unsure if Vardy needs surgery

Puel unsure if Vardy needs surgery Leicester City boss Claude Puel could be without Jamie Vardy for Wednesday's trip to Fulham, with the striker managing a groin injury.

Jamie Vardy has revealed his finest season in football was fired by the remarkable ritual of drinking port the night before a game , then three cans of Red Bull and a double espresso on the day. The Leicester striker, whose 24 goals led his side to the Premier League title, said the combination was the reason

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.

Vardy may require operation for groin injury

Vardy may require operation for groin injury Jamie Vardy will be injured for Wednesday’s game against Fulham, and will miss a reunion with Claudio Ranieri, according to The Telegraph. The 31-year-old has been playing while carrying a groin injury, but a setback in training looks to keep him away from Craven Cottage on Wednesday. More worrying is the suggestion that Vardy, the Leicester’s current top goalscorer, will require an operation to overcome the longstanding problem. Claude Puel has been willing to discuss the striker’s injury, but the Leicester Mercury reports that the Foxes’ boss has remained quiet about other absentees. Three centre-backs are believed to be ruled out for the game, with Harry Maguire out. Meanwhile, Wes Morgan and Jonny Evans are both doubtful in defence. Puel said: “I don’t know my starting team because I have problems with different players,” Preparations against Ranieri, who infamously won the Premier League with Leicester in the 2015-16 season, seem fragmented to say the least. However, Puel will hope to have a fit and firing side out, as he aims to go seven games unbeaten in all competitions. Fulham would have been there for the taking in recent months. Yet, under Ranieri’s resurgence, anything could happen in this midweek affair.

Tottenham Hotspur caretaker manager Tim Sherwood has said that he would love to become official manager of the club, but it was not his decision to make.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich told reporters pre- game that Leonard is "questionable" ahead of Saturday. "We won ' t know until Friday or Saturday," he said. Simmons filled in admirably in game six of the Western Conference semi-finals against the Houston Rockets and was his replacement when

“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.
