Super Eagles’ striker, Henry Onyekuru has returned to Anderlecht after successfully completing his rehabilitation from injury at his parent club Everton, AOIFootball.com can authoritatively confirm.
The former Eupen striker, who has been out for three months after getting injured last December, made a quick recovery after initial fears that he could miss the rest of the season.
However, the player himself, who returned to full training a fortnight ago, confirmed exclusively to AOIFootball.com that he has now returned to Anderlecht to finish the season and is expected to return to active playing in two weeks.
“I’m back in Anderlecht now to finish the season. I will start playing in two weeks’ time, hopefully, I can contribute my quota and help my team to success and try and win the title.
“It’s been a tough few months for me but I thank God I am back now. Hopefully, the next few months will be good for me and my team,” Onyekuru said.
On making Nigeria’s world cup list, Onyekuru was however calm about his chances but said he wants to focus on playing and getting back to his scoring best.
“Honestly, for now, I am not thinking about the World Cup. I just want to focus on my training and games for now and hopefully, we will see what happens from there,” Onyekuru concluded.
Onyekuru scored 9 goals for Anderlecht before his injury in December and will be hoping to replicate his form and lead Anderlecht to league success.
