Enyimba striker Christian Obiozor out for one month

20 August 2015, 18:19

Aba - Enyimba will miss the services of their striker, Christian Obiozor for the next four weeks, the club has announced.

Obiozor hit the ground running at Enyimba since he left the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) defending champions, Kano Pillars.

The former non-league team, Fame FC player, Obiozor has always been an impact in all the clubs he has been.  He helped Fame FC to the last sixteen in the 2012 Federation Cup, got an invite to the Super Eagles, completed a move to Enugu Rangers then he showed glances of a striker that will deliver at Kano Pillars, but that relationship didn't last long, as he later moved to Enyimba where he's the highest scorer with six goals at the people's Elephant.

Obiozor picked the injury during the Oriental derby of July 19 in Enugu and latest information from the club after further scans has revealed that the damaged left cruciate ligament will take more time to heal and that will take another four weeks.

According to the club, team doctor Ferdinand Ajere has confirmed the 20-year-old will be out for four weeks and may be available for selection half way into the month of September against El-Kanemi Warriors.
