My Focus Is On Getting Back Better  –Troost-Ekong

Super Eagles defender, William Troost-Ekong says he hopes to be back better than before after being sidelined from the remainder of the season due to an injury.

Recall that the Nigerian international played an integral part as the Super Eagles made it through to the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, where the team lost 2-1 to Ivory Coast in the final.

Troost-Ekong, who sustained a season ending injury, is expected to return next season after undergoing surgery.

In a message via his X handle account, Troost-Ekong noted that he hopes to be back better than before.

“PAOK family, as many know, I got injured during AFCON. Disappointingly, this injury has turned out to be more serious than first thought. I have always given everything and pushed myself. Every player has played with pain at some point in their career to fight for club or country. It’s part of the game,” read the statement posted on the player’s X handle.

“I managed to continue in the knockout stages, and I was willing to continue to do the same now to help PAOK push for the prizes in the league and Europe too, but after more assessments and consultations, it was the best decision long-term to undergo the surgery now.

“My full focus is on getting back better than ever before.”
