Echiejile Trains Alone After Injury

Echiejile Trains Alone After Injury

–Eagles star battling to recover on time

Super Eagles defender Elderson Echiejile has said he is training apart from the AS Monaco full squad after he suffered a knock while on international duty with Nigeria in 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifier last week.

“I suffered a knock during the match against South Africa, I feel some pain around my hip, near my groin, and so I have been training on my own since I returned to my club,” Elderson reported.

“I hope to rejoin the group in a couple of days.”
The injury meant he was not involved in his club’s last game at Lyon on Friday, which they lost 2-1.

Monaco languish in the drop zone on four points from five matches. They face Guingampnext Sunday.

A muscle injury in a warm-up match denied the leftback a second World Cup appearance in the summer.
