Onyekuru hopes time spent with family will speed up his recovery

Onyekuru hopes time spent with family will speed up his recovery

Super Eagles forward, Henry Onyekuru has returned to Nigeria to spend his holidays with his family, and believes the visit will help him recover fast from his injury.

The Anderlecht star was declared out for the rest of the season after tearing his medial ligament during last Friday’s 1-0 win over his former club Eupen and was taken off on a stretcher in the 78th minute.

But the Nigeria international, who is likely to miss the 2018 World Cup due to the injury, tweeted on Saturday with pictures of himself on crutches that he hopes to be back better and stronger.

“Had to come back Home 🇳🇬 to spend time with the family. Family time speeds up the recovery, God willing I’ll be back better and stronger 🙏🏾🤙🏾#Baby Sis ❤️🎄” he tweeted.

Onyekuru cost Everton £6.8m in the summer from Eupen, but was immediately loaned to Anderlecht following his inability to obtain a work permit in England.

This season, he has scored nine goals in 19 league appearances playing as a winger for the Belgian giants, and 10 goals in 28 games in all competitions.
