Leicester City's James Maddison out of Slavia Prague trip

Leicester City's James Maddison out of Slavia Prague trip

Leicester City ace James Maddison is set to miss his side's Europa League clash against Slavia Prague on Thursday. 

Maddison is unlikely to need surgery but has been in London seeing a specialist over his hip injury. The England international came off during Sunday's 2-1 victory over Aston Villa. 

"He won't be available. He is in consultation with our doctor and some specialists, we are just trying to see where we're at," boss Brendan Rodgers said.

"We don't believe he needs more surgery. It's irritable where he's had the issue before. He's been to London yesterday with our club doctor and he is there today getting another opinion."

"We're confident he doesn't need anything surgical. We just have to get a specialist's opinion on it to formulate a plan for his recovery."

"We'll look to be pretty flexible, we have other players with other attributes. We've had injuries all season and the beauty of this team and squad is they are quite flexible and they are very adaptable."

The Foxes will miss the services of James Justin (knee), Ayoze Perez (knee), Dennis Praet (hamstring), and Wesley Fofana (hamstring). 

The Premier League side settled for a goalless draw in the first leg of their last-32 clash.
