Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson believes Ghana international Jeffrey Schlupp may not be out of action for too long, but said the decision was in the best interests of his welfare.
“From the outset of the injury we thought two weeks but I am not going to put a timescale on that,” he told Leicester Mercury. “He will not be available this week and maybe next week, but we will see.”
“I suppose the reality of the situation is the potential difference in availability may not be too big anyway. The most important thing in anything like this is the wellbeing of the player.
“It is not the politics involved between whether there should be international tournaments during a season or any other issues really.”
Pearson added: “My views are very clear. I am the manager of this club and I want the players to perform as best they can for us.
“I am always very supportive of players representing their country but my priority is always Leicester City first and foremost.”
