Gabriel Okechukwu in action for Wydad Athletic in a league match
Former Akwa United forward, Gabriel Okechukwu will have to watch from the sidelines for the next two weeks after the striker suffered a dislocated shoulder whilst playing for Wydad Athletic Club over the weekend, reports.
The 23-year-old started the match against Rapide Oued Zem on Sunday but lasted just 11 minutes after going down injured before he was replaced by compatriot Babatunde Michael as the hosts kept cool to win the match 3-0.
Scans after the match, however, revealed that the player had suffered a dislocated shoulder and would be out for between Two to three weeks.
The injury will come as a blow to both the player and club as Okechukwu has impressed greatly for the league leaders in their last four games after finally breaking into the starting XI.
Wydad currently leads the Moroccan Botola League with 42 points from 19 games, 14 points ahead of second-placed Raja who have played three games less.
