Unfortunately it appears Leicester City might have suffered another injury. This time it’s not a defender, as winger Cengiz Under has an issue.
On Wednesday evening Turkey drew 3-3 with Croatia. Leicester City loanee Cengiz Under played and scored for the Turks; however, he was also withdrawn from the game following a tough tackle on the wingman.
Under is already becoming a favourite with many Leicester supporters: he is direct, very skillful, has an eye for unique shooting opportunities – similarly to Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes – and can supply key assists in tight contests as a ‘supersub’.
The last element of the Roma man’s style was witnessed against Arsenal, as well as versus Leeds United. Both of those matches were victorious, earned without the 23-year-old beginning the match. Though his contributions were significant.
Although he’ll want to eventually become a stater for Brendan Rodgers, at his tender age especially, he is gaining vital experience for a fine Premier League career.
Leicester City’s Cengiz Under possibly injured
Currently, Under’s national team-mate Caglar Soyuncu is sidelined with a fairly long-term problem. While Soyuncu may be fit for the Tottenham Hotspur clash on December 19, as Foxes of Leicester gauge from the manager’s explanation of the centre-back’s progress.
Meanwhile, the winger, as previously mentioned, came off near the end of his country’s draw with the Croats. There is no update available on Under’s status to report at the moment, according to Leicestershire Live. FoL will publish another piece when more is know.
When the international interruption – tournaments are fine, but friendlies and the Nations League seem unnecessary during a health crisis – is finally over and club football begins again, Leicester play champions Liverpool. At present, the Foxes are above the Reds in the English top-flight. Yet Jurgen Klopp’s men will undoubtedly fancy their chances against Rodgers‘ high flying side.
