After fully recovering from a bout of malaria that has kept him away from action since his loan switch to the Super Lig giants, the Nigeria international has expressed his delight at returning to training.
Henry Onyekuru returned for a second loan spell at the Super Lig champions a few weeks ago from French club Monaco, but his quest to get in the thick of the action was hit with a bout of malaria.
After overcoming the medical setback, the 22-year-old is raring to make his second debut for the Yellow-Reds.
Writing on his verified Twitter handle, the former Eupen star said, “It’s a blessing to be back doing what I love! 2020 started with little setback due to illness but I’m 100% now. Let’s get started! God is Good.”
