Onyekuru: Great To Return To Pitch, Honoured To Make My Galatasaray Debut

Onyekuru: Great To Return To Pitch, Honoured To Make My Galatasaray Debut

By Adeboye Amosu:

Nigeria forward, Henry Onyekuru,  is thrilled to be back on the field again after injury disrupted his campaign last season and he feels honoured to wear the Galatasaray shirt for the first time, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.

Onyekuru season was cut short  after he picked up a knee injury in Anderlecht’s league clash against his former club Eupen.

Though he featured in a couple of reserve games in the closing stages of the campaign after recovering from the injury, he was not considered fit enough to play for the first team.

Onyekuru made his first appearance for Galatasaray in a pre-season game against Dutch club PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday following his loan move from English Premier League outfit, Everton.

The striker came in the 66th minute for Jose Rodriguez with Fathi Terim’s men going down to a 3-1 defeat.

“What a great feeling to be back on the field after such a long time. Preseason is in full effect! Honored to wear the Galatassary kit for the 1st time! 💛❤ #Thankful 🙏,” Onyekuru wrote on his Twitter handle.

    Smart move.Well we the Nigerian fans are yet to be convinced over your game even the gaffer does not see you as a player of importance to his team so there’s something not right despite your good romance with top teams though not in the elite European class.
    Galatasaray is an improvement from Anderlecht so all eyes are on you.
    Good performances there would help snow ball your chances with the natonal team.
