Lagos - Super Eagles defender, Leon Aderemi Balogun says he will drop the POP on his injured toe by the end of the week.
Balogun was pulled off just few minutes after coming on as a second half substitute in a goalless international friendly against Mexico on March 5.
Speaking on his health status, the Fortuna Dusseldorf FC of Germany said he is recovering very well as he does not feel any pain on the injured toe but has been warned against rushing to train.
"The recovery rate is perfect and by the end of this week I should drop the boot on the toe but I don’t want to make the mistake of many players who immediately rush back to training even when at the moment I feel no pain.”
“I should be able to tell you my next move by the end of the week, but I will be ready when the Eagles are getting back to camp", he said.
Balogun again praised the NFF leadership headed by Aminu Maigari for the concern they have shown towards his recovery and promised to rededicate himself to the Nigerian cause when he recovers fully.
"From the NFF, to the coach and all Nigerians, I am very grateful for all the concern they have shown me and I pray that I can repay them when I recover fully", he declared.
