Nigeria’s midfield maestro, Ogenyi Onazi, faces a potential setback following a “little tightness in his hamstring” during Trabzonspor’s Turkish League clash against Kayserispor. Despite the early substitution in the 28th minute of the game, Onazi remains optimistic about a swift return to the field, as reported by Completesportsnigeria.com.
The vice-captain of Nigeria’s national team expressed his confidence in being fit for action soon, assuring fans via his Instagram page, “Another good performance from the team. I would have loved to finish the game, but had to go out due to a little tightness on my hamstring. But I will be back soon by his grace.”
Trabzonspor exhibited their dominance in the encounter, securing a commanding 4-0 victory against Kayserispor. Abdulkadri Omur and Yusuf Yazici contributed to the early goals, setting the stage for a stellar performance. Burak Yilmaz’s second-half brace sealed the comprehensive win for the club.
Despite Onazi’s untimely departure, his significant contributions have been evident throughout the season, featuring in 18 league appearances for Trabzonspor. The team currently holds the sixth position in the Turkish Super Lig standings, accumulating 45 points from 28 games.
With six games remaining in the league, Trabzonspor remains in contention for the coveted UEFA Europa League spots, fostering hopes of clinching one of the two available positions. As Onazi focuses on his recovery, the team aims to maintain its momentum and secure a prestigious European qualification berth in the league standings.
