Odemwingie delighted to make Stoke return

14 January 2016, 08:05Israel Ojoko

London - Peter Odemwingie made a return to competitive football action at his Premiership side Stoke City in a 3-1 victory over Norwich on Wednesday, and the striker has expressed his delight.

The Nigeria international has been out of action for over three months due to injury, and has now played only three premier league games for Stoke this season.

He replaced Bojan Krkic in the 56th minute and gave a good account of himself at the Britannia stadium.

“Thanks guys. Was good to get a run out in the best stadium in the world. The boys said back from Siberia, I said Antarctica.” He twitted.

Last season, the 34-year-old suffered a cruciate ligament injury in the Premier League tie against Manchester City which ruled him out of action for eight months, and was only able to make five appearances off the bench on his return from the ailment.

With his contract set to expire on June 30, 2016, it remains to be seen if he would be offered an extension as he had found game time difficult to come by due to his health condition.
