Real Sociedad Boss Provides Injury Update On Sadiq

Umar Sadiq could be set for a spell on the sidelines after sustaining an injury in Real Sociedad’s 2-1 defeat at Getafe on Sunday night.

The Nigeria international was replaced by Mohamed-Ali Cho seven minutes before the break after suffering a freak injury.

Sadiq is expected to undergo test on Monday (today) to determine the extent of the injury.

Real Sociedad manager Imanol Alguacil is already worried the striker could be sidelined for a while.

“The image has been ugly, but we have to wait for the tests,” Alguacil said after the game.

Sadiq linked up with the White and Blue from another LaLiga club, Almeria this summer.

The 25-year-old scored on his debut for the club against Atletico Madrid.

The injury could also forced Sadiq to miss Nigeria’s upcoming international friendly against the Desert Foxes of Algeria on September 27 in Oran.

  • Buhari step down o, Buhari step down o. Your mere presence as the head of state of Nigeria will bring us bad luck o. can you people see. all the injuries leading up to AFCON the injury to Ndidi for the Ghana Knock outs. Iwobi’s first start in AFCON which led to a straight red that caused him to miss out on Ghana knock outs in March. Which means we missed Ndidi and Iwobi in those games. now Osimhen’s injury and Sadiq. Fingers crossed Bassey is finr. it is as if come lead up to a big tournament all our players and important ones will start getting injuries so even if we qualified for World Cup this is how they would have been injured up and down. Gods of favour are not doing Nigeria any justice o. Buhari step down oo.. a word is enough for the wise. oya let the insults begin because i speak the truth.

    With Osimhen and Sadiq out, the likes of Moffi, Onuachu, Dessers, Isaac Success and possibly Okereke can step up. Victor Boniface hasn’t done badly, with 1 goal and 1 assist in 5 games in the Belgian top flight.
    Arokodare in the French Ligue 2 has been decent too. Though he missed a penalty against Caen yesterday, he’s been ok this season, with 4 goals in 8 games.

    While all the strikers mentioned above are competent, I would suggest to The NFF if they are ever able to get their house in order, to make sure we do not lose some bright homegrown prospects doing well in Europe to overseas countries.
    Sopruchukwu Onyemaechi, Emmanuel Gift Orban, Thompson Ishaka among others should be capped at the youth level as soon as possible.
    A few weeks ago, after a dazzling performance for Rangers B team, a Scottish newspaper brazenly referred to Thompson Ishaka as an English youngster. A kid born and raised here in Nigeria who played academy football here and only travelled to England not long ago.
    My point here is that while we strive to reel in some foreign-born players of Nigerian extraction, we need to be smart and quickly and methodically cap all our very promising young players in Europe who are, by the way Nigerians through and through.
