Injured Onyekuru Returns To Everton From Anderlecht Loan

Nigeria forward Henry Onyekuru has returned to Everton after suffering a serious knee injury while on loan at Anderlecht, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Onyekuru was to undergo surgery on his knee after being strecthered off in a Belgian league match two weeks ago.

He got injured late into Anderlecht’s 1-0 win over his former club Eupen in a Belgian First Division A fixture and Anderlecht confirmed he would undergo surgery and be out for several months.

“Back at @Everton a little earlier than expected, I am so grateful for the facilities and the medical team working hard to get me back playing ASAP!” Onyekuru tweeted on Saturday with a picture of him in Everton kit at the club’s grounds.

“The Lord is my strength 🙏🏾.”

Onyekuru joined Everton from Eupen at the beginning of the season but was immediately loaned out to Anderlecht where he overcame a slow start to hit good form.

The youngster scored nine goals in 19 league appearances for Anderlecht and 10 goals in 28 games in all competitions despite playing mostly as a wide forward.

    Henry, we Nigerians everywhere, thank God for your magical recovery from this injury. Those managers in Anderlecht club does not wish you good. It demonstrated obviously that the Club is a wrong place to be. They wanted to ruin your young and promising career before it even started. No surgery was needed and in few week’s time, Nigerians in United States will have the privilege of watching you do your thing in the premier league.
