In a fervent display of determination, Nigeria’s dynamic forward, Henry Onyekuru, is poised to make a triumphant return to the pitch for Belgian powerhouse RSC Anderlecht after enduring a challenging three-month hiatus due to a knee injury, as reported by Completesportsnigeria.com. Onyekuru, aged 20, recently resumed training with the club, marking a significant milestone in his recovery journey.
The young striker, currently on loan from the English Premier League side Everton, showcased his commitment to regaining full fitness by contributing 30 minutes to the club’s reserve team’s resounding 4-1 victory against Lokeren this Tuesday. Having observed his teammates secure a convincing 3-1 triumph over Sporting Charleroi in a league encounter at the Stade Constant Vanden Stock last Sunday, Onyekuru took to Twitter to express his eagerness to rejoin the action, stating, “Proud of the guys! @rscanderlecht Can’t wait to get back on the pitch!”
Prior to his injury setback, Onyekuru left an indelible mark, netting nine goals in 19 appearances in the highly competitive Belgian Jupiler Pro League while donning the colors of Anderlecht. His impending return is anticipated with great enthusiasm, as fans eagerly await the resurgence of his goal-scoring prowess on the field.
