Bayer Leverkusen striker, Victor Boniface is set to spend about four months out of football action after picking up an injury in the national camp.

The 23-year-old has wowed the Bundesliga with 10 goals and seven assists in sixteen league starts.

OGC Nice’s Terem Moffi has been drafted into the squad as Boniface’s replacement and has traveled to Ivory Coast with the rest of the team.

Bayer Leverkusen has now taken to social media to give an update on his injury as they confirmed that the Nigerian will need surgery and will be out until April.
