NIGERIA STAR ONYEKURU MAKES HIS RETURN AT ANDERLECHT

Nigeria international Henry Onyekuru made his long awaited return from injury at his Belgian club RSC Anderlecht on Wednesday.

The forward has been out nursing a knee injury which he sustained in a Belgian First Divison A match against his former side KAS Eupen in December 2017.

Onyekuru was expected to miss the reminder of the season, but the 20-year-old featured for Anderlecht as they thumped Lokeren 4-1 in a reserve league game on Wednesday.

The Belgian giants released the following statement on their official Twitter account:

“After winning the title with the reserves yesterday evening, @Andy_Najar1993 & @henryconyekuru are training hard with the first team today.”

“Glad to have you back boys!,” Anderlecht wrote on Twitter on Wednesday and included a video of Onyekuru training with his colleagues,” a statement read.

Onyekuru hit the back of the net nine times in 19 appearances for Anderlecht before he suffered his long-term injury.

The skillful player is currently on a season-long loan deal at Anderlecht from English Premier League side Everton FC.
