Home-based Eagles and Rangers international of Enugu striker, Sani Sanusi has said his injury worry is over and he will soon return to full action for the ‘antelopes’.
The former Gombe United player has been sidelined by a nagging knee injury which he said he picked in the return leg of the preliminary match of this year’s CAF Champions League match against CS Sfaxien of Tunisia.
Speaking to Sunday Trust yesterday, the lanky striker expressed sadness over the injury which has kept him out of action for close to three months.
He, however, said he has received proper medical attention and based on the advice from his doctors, he has started training and would soon be back to full fitness.
Sanusi said he can’t wait to be back in action for Rangers as he said the joy of any player is only when he plays week in week out for his club.
He maintained that when he returns, he would help the ‘antelopes’ to improve on their standing on the league table and if possible qualify to represent the country again.
Sanusi said nobody should be deceived that Rangers cannot pick a continental ticket because of the team’s present position on the league table.
“Although I was sidelined by a knee injury which I picked when we played against cS Sfaxien of Tunisia in the CAF Champions League, I have recovered. I have started training and hope to be back soon. As I speak with you I am in Gombe but I will return to Enugu next week to rejoin my team mates.
“At the moment we are not where we should be on the table but I am sure we are going to fight for a continental ticket. Even as we have exited the Federation Cup, we still have the league to play.
“Although I have played only two league matches, I hope to make my contributions when I resume fully”, he assured.
