Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers reported on Ayoze Pérez’s injury before the first leg of the Europa League round of 32 at Slavia Prague.

The 27-year-old entered in the 74th minute against Liverpool last weekend, but was replaced before injury time with a left knee injury.

Ahead of tomorrow’s European tie at Sinobo Stadium, Rodgers confirmed that the forward is unavailable and will be out of action for a couple of weeks.

Meanwhile, Rodgers also confirmed that Ricardo Pereira will not be traveling with the team as he has returned from a long injury layoff and wants to offer him more protection.

“Ayo will be out for a couple of weeks. Ricardo, having been away for so long, you have to be very careful with your load ”. said at a press conference quoted by Leicester Mercury. “Ricardo will not be involved as he is coming back from a long-term injury and he needs that protection.”

Aside from the duo, Wesley Fofana (thigh), James Justin (knee surgery), Dennis Praet (hamstring) and Wes Morgan (back) are not available to the Foxes.

Timothy Castagne has returned to training after a thigh injury, but Rodgers said he is not fit enough to play Slavia on Thursday night.
