On Thursday, DH in Belgium gave an update, or at least tried to, about Henry Onyekuru’s recovery from his spell on the sidelines.
The bottom line was Everton were confident the Nigeria international would be able to come back before the end of the season, but Anderlecht weren’t entirely sure his knee would hold up if he returned in the near future.
For the Belgium side, the 20-year-old was out for the rest of the season, and might even need surgery, but Everton’s medical team seemed confident he could do without it.
Well, on Friday, ahead of their game against Royal Excel Mouscron, the Jupiler Pro League reigning champions gave an official update on Onyekuru’s fitness, and it doesn’t really answer any questions fans might have had.
They write: “Henry Onyekuru, who injured his knee before the New Year, is working on his return at Everton. More news on the Nigerian’s situation will be communicated to us at some point in the coming week.”
Guess’ we’ll have to wait until then.
Prior to his injury, the forward had scored 10 goals in 28 appearances for Anderlecht, where, despite his injury, he remains their top scorer.
