Conor Coady of Leicester City reports that he is ‘feeling well’ as he accelerates his rehabilitation from a fractured foot.
Coady moved from Wolves to Leicester City in the summer.
The 30-year-old became a member of the Foxes this summer in one of several high-profile signings for a rumoured £7.5 million fee that might possibly increase to £ 8.5 million.
Coady hasn’t played for the Foxes yet, though. He was sidelined after suffering a foot fracture in the preseason.
However, Coady recently shared good news concerning his injury in an interview with BBC5Live, as reported by Leicestershire Live.
“I was devastated when it occurred two weeks into the preseason. I attempted to play through it a little bit, but I soon realized there was a problem, and I ended up breaking my foot.
If I’m being absolutely honest, I’ve never been hurt before, so coming here and getting it at the time I did was shocking, but now I’m looking forward to it. Now that I’m back on the field with the boys, I’m working out, feeling good and strong, and I’m hoping we can hit the season as hard as we can.
Prior to their most recent loss at Hull City, Leicester City under Enzo Maresca had won all six of their first games of the 2023–24 campaign. This put them in third place going into the current international break.
A welcome comeback…
Only four goals have been allowed in Leicester City’s first five Championship games. But in those five games, they only managed to keep one clean sheet.
Therefore, Maresca, who has performed admirably thus far although there is undoubtedly room for development with this Leicester City team, will undoubtedly benefit from having someone of Coady’s experience and caliber on the defensive line.
Coady appears to still have a ways to go before he can make his Foxes debut, so Maresca is not likely to rush him back into action.
However, Coady’s return will be greatly appreciated by the Foxes as they fight for an immediate promotion back to the Premier League.
Leicester’s next match is a Friday night trip to Southampton.
