Ritchie De Laet: Facing six weeks on sidelines

The Belgian's leg had become infected and the right-back now faces an extended spell on the sidelines but City manager Nigel Pearson revealed it might have been much worse for him.

"A simple knock on it and he could have been out for the rest of the season," said Pearson.

"It is important that our concern is chiefly with the player's wellbeing.

"He needs to get it sorted, but he is well on the way to recovering now. Hopefully it won't be too many weeks, but it will be a month or so."

De Laet made the move to the King Power Stadium from Manchester United in the summer of 2012 and has made 12 appearances for Leicester this season, although he missed Saturday's 2-1 Championship win over Huddersfield.

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
