Leicester blow: Brendan Rodgers provides disastrous James Justin injury update

Brendan Rodgers has issued an injury update on James Justin and it is very bad news for the defender...


Brendan Rodgers has revealed that James Justin will miss the rest of the season with an injury.

The defender was stretchered off against Newport County in what looked like a terrible injury.

Now, it has been revealed that Justin has ruptured his Achilles and will play no further part in the Foxes’ campaign.

Justin’s season over

Justin becomes the latest victim to suffer a long-term injury and have his hopes of making the World Cup dashed.

The defender, along with his club, was just coming back into form and was in contention for a possible Three Lions call-up.

However, any hopes of being on the plane to Qatar were ended on Tuesday evening having ruptured his Achilles.

The 24-year-old has previously suffered an early season-ending injury having done his ACL back in February 2021.

Now, he is set for another extended spell on the sidelines.
