Scum changing their tune Benkovic out until end February now
That’s brutal as well, if true.
* that we could be missing him and KT for the Valencia game.
Hopefully both will be fine for the last 16 ties.
They don’t have a clue.. you’d think * would have learned to ignore them by now..
Well this is becoming a * worry
February isn't that bad. It's hardly the rest of the season.
BR on Filip Benkovic: "Initially he'll be out for around 4-5 weeks. His ankle will be in a boot and then we'll assess it from there. Disappointing but Jozo Simunovic came in and was excellent tonight.
So looking at about 2 month's?
Will it be just the ankle in a boot?
BRENDAN RODGERS has confirmed Filip Benkovic is battling to save his season.
The crocked Croatian missed the 2-0 win over St Johnstone as he awaits tests on an ankle injury.
Rodgers is hopeful Benkovic will be back in mid-March but won’t know for a few weeks yet.
He said: “Filip will be out for a number of weeks. It’s disappointing.
“We just have to wait on what the definitive time-frame will be.
“Hopefully he will be back this season but we are waiting on further tests on his ankle.
“It will initially be four to five weeks. He will have his ankle in a boot.
We will assess it after that, then it will take another week to 10 days to get back into training again.
“He hasn’t gone back to Leicester. He will stay with us.”
Is Boyata going to be out much longer?
Ajer, Boyata, Jozo, Bitton and Hendry should be fine until he’s back.
Silver lining, he doesn't develop as well as Leicester would hope/willing to let him come back for another season because of this.

The big man will be back to win the league!
As long as he’s back for the EL final we’ll be fine.
Only worry is that they’ll most likely sell Maguire in the summer and want him back.
If they had any brains they would, as Benkovic is better than McGuire imo.
They’d be a * excellent partnership. A sort of Carvalho/Terry thing.
With Benkovics mounting injuries I doubt Leicester would agree at the moment but he definitely has huge potential just needs experience.
McGuire was outstanding last night for them. Looked very good.
Captioned this ‘A way of life’
Confirms he’s staying.
