Super Eagles prospect, Moses Odubajo, is set for a return to Hull City first team action next month after being sidelined with injury, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Odubajo, 23, ruptured his medial knee ligament in Hull City's first pre-season friendly against Grimsby, which has prevented him from making his Premier League debut following the club's promotion from the Championship.
Reports on Odubajo's imminent return from injury will be a welcome development for Hull City fans who watched their side get thrashed 6-1 by Bournemouth in the English Premier League on Saturday.
And in an interview on Hull's official website, Odubajo said he was making progress and can't wait to get back on the pitch for Hull.
“Words can’t really explain how hard it was when I found out how long I was going to be out for,” said Odubajo.
“But we have a fantastic medical team here and it feels like a blessing to be back to the stage I’m at now. I’m progressing really well and I think I’ve got about another month to go. Hopefully by the next international break I’ll be in and around things, which is good.
“I’m back working outside now. I went to see the surgeon last week and he gave the all-clear to get back outside with no real restrictions. It’s a case now of trying to get back to where I was before in terms of fitness and taking it from there.
“It’s a huge boost to be going back outside to work every morning. I feel like a footballer again, even though I’m not back to the playing stage yet. Before, I’d be in the treatment room every day with people coming in and asking ‘how is it going?’ which is nice, but deep down you’re so frustrated because you don’t want to be in there.
“Then I went back outside to work for the first time and the lads were all there clapping me out. I went for my first run around the pitch and thought ‘yes, I feel like a footballer again’!”
