Nigeria and Trabzonspor midfielder Ogenyi Onazi is set to return to training this week after recovering from a knee injury.
The Super Eagles midfielder has recovered from a knee knock that saw him miss Trabzonspor’s 0-0 draw away at Genclerbirligi on Saturday.
Onazi has not featured for Trabzonspor in their last three games in the Turkish Super Lig, but was on the bench against Fenerbahce and Goztepe before being granted a special leave prior to the Genclerbirligi draw.
The 25-year-old also took timeout to praise the new Super Eagles kit for the 2018 FIFA World Cup which was launched in London last week.
“I had a slight knock on my knee but I will resume training this week with the team,” Onazi told CSN.
“I need to be fully fit before returning. They are nice (kit).”
Onazi has made 13 league appearances for Trabzonspor so far this term and will be hoping to avoid injuries ahead of the global showpiece in June.
