Anderlecht forward Henry Onyekuru is confident the time he will spend with his family in Nigeria while on break will help speed up his recovery froma serious injury, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Onyekuru tore his knee ligaments while in action for Anderlecht in their 1-0 Belgian league win against his former club KAS Eupen last weekend.
Afterwards, a statement on the official website of Anderlecht revealed that Onyekuru would undergo surgery and spend several months on the sidelines as a result of the injury.
“Had to come back Home 🇳🇬 to spend time with the family. Family time speeds up the recovery, God willing I’ll be back better and stronger 🙏🏾🤙🏾#Baby Sis,” the Nigerian international tweeted on Saturday with pictures of himself on crutches, receiving a lech from his sister apparently in the family house.
Onyekuru, 20, joined Everton from Eupen at the beginning of the season but was immediately loaned out to Anderlecht where he has scored nine goals in 19 league games and 10 goals in 28 games in all competitions until his injury.
