Nigerian football sensation Henry Onyekuru has extended his heartfelt appreciation to all those involved in his recovery from a debilitating long-term injury, as reported by Completesportsnigeria.com. The 20-year-old suffered a knee injury during Anderlecht’s 1-0 victory over his former club Eupen in a Belgian First Division A fixture last December, prompting the club to confirm his need for surgery and an extended absence from the field.
As part of his rehabilitation process, the talented young forward was obliged to return to his parent club, Everton, in England. However, he has since resumed full training with Anderlecht, where he is currently on a season-long loan. Taking to Twitter, Onyekuru expressed his gratitude, saying, “I want to say thank you to everyone that made my recovery possible. The medical team, staff, and doctors @Everton for their rehab and facilities. I also want to thank @rscanderlecht and the amazing supporters for their support and their faith in me during this journey🙏🏾🙏🏾,” accompanied by a picture of himself executing an acrobatic kick in Anderlecht’s training gear.
After a grueling five-month hiatus, during which he diligently followed his rehabilitation program, Onyekuru is expected to make his highly anticipated return to competitive action in the near future. The young talent joined Everton from Eupen at the beginning of the season, only to be immediately loaned out to Anderlecht. Despite a slow start, he showcased his immense potential by netting an impressive nine goals in 19 league appearances and accumulating a total of 10 goals in 28 games across all competitions, primarily playing as a wide forward before his unfortunate injury.
Onyekuru’s resilience and determination have undoubtedly left an indelible mark on both Everton and Anderlecht. With his imminent return to the pitch, fans eagerly await the resurgence of this exceptional football prodigy, whose undeniable talent and unwavering spirit continue to inspire both teammates and supporters alike.
