Abia Warriors defender, Nnaemeka returns after two months

02 September 2015, 10:14

Abuja - Abia Warriors FC (Umuahia) ahead of their midweek clash with Nasarawa United of Lafia as its hard tackling defender, Nnaemeka Anyanwu who has been out of action since June 21, 2015 due to injury, has returned to training.

The former Rangers International of Enugu and Enyimba of Aba rear man last featured for the Warriors in a 1-0 victory against Akwa United of Uyo in a week 13 encounter at the Enyimba International Stadium, Aba where he sustained a knee ligament tear.

But the Imo State born former Flying Eagles defender returned to full training with his team mates last week after recovering from the ailment to further bolster Coach Ladan Bosso’s selection options.

Dr Enyinnaya Anozie, the head of Abia Warriors’ medical team who battled the injury alongside his colleague, Uwaoma Ogwuma, described the injury as career threatening but expressed happiness that Nnaemeka recovered from it in a record time after undergoing series of rehabilitation programmes.

Dr. Anozie also gave update on Abia Warriors goalkeeper, Chinedu Udeh, who fractured his fibular and dislocated his ankle joint during a training session on June 23, 2015, saying he will soon be back to full fitness after undergoing his own rehabilitation.

“Iroko”, as the goalkeeper is known by his admirers and who last stood in-between the goal post for Abia Warriors against Wikki Tourists of Bauchi on April 19, 2015, expressed happiness that he had a miraculous healing, pointing out that he will soon resume training.
