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.

miraculous healing, pointing out that he will soon resume training.
