NPFL UPDATE: Enyimba's Ikechukwu Ibenegbu's Injury not career threatening
Attacking midfielder, Ikechukwu Ibenegbu has described as not career threatening the right ankle injury he picked in the clash against Nasarawa United.
“Yes, the injury is a fresh one on my right ankle picked in the clash against Nasarawa United in Calabar. It happened in the first half as I was unable to continue with the game . I feared the worst injury as I was not able to move without 100% support but now I move around as it was not as serious as early feared.
“The wound is being treated first while I will later undergo a scan test to crosscheck the bones. I feel quite strong on the leg right now not to entertain any fear of fracture. I’m not sure that I will stay off the pitch beyond two weeks, my response to treatment is heart-warming.
“Besides, I do not want any form of injury in the on-going top-flight, I want to play regularly. I’m eager to come back to the pitch to contribute my quota to the success of Enyimba,” said the former Heartland and Warri Wolves goal poacher to supersport.com.
The Nigerian star was a second half substitute in his side’s 2-1 win against the Solid Miners in top-flight matchday 5 clash at adopted ground, UJ Esuene Stadium in Calabar.
Ibenegbu will be a sore miss in the side’s top-flight matchday 6 clash at El Kanemi Warriors in Maiduguri on Sunday.
