Super Eagles midfielder Oghenekharo Etebo has returned to training three weeks after sustaining an ankle injury at his Spanish club Las Palmas reports, Completesportsnigeria.com.
Etebo got injured in Las Palmas’ 2-0 LaLiga to Villarreal last month and was forced to sit out key league fixtures against Real Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna.
He also missed Nigeria’s international friendlies against Poland and Serbia in Wroclaw and London respectively due to the injury.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who has been instrumental in Las Palmas’ survival hopes, returned to first team training on Tuesday afternoon, ahead of his club’s weekend game away to Malaga.
He wrote beneath a picture of him at training he posted on his Instagram page: “Ready for the challenges ahead #neverGiveup#EK#VamosUD.”
His return will, however, be a massive boost for the team as they hope to play themselves out of the relegation zone.
Las Palmas are 17th in the Spanish LaLiga table with 21 points from 30 games.
Las Palmas will face Levante, Real Sociedad, Real Betis, Alaves, Espanyol, Getafe, Eibar and Girona in their remaining fixtures this season.
