The Nigerian left-back has been a regular for the Portuguese kings this season, but he will miss their crucial Cup clash
Super Eagles defender Zaidu Sanusi has been ruled out of Porto’s League Cup clash against Vizela on Friday because of an injury.
Sanusi has been out of action since November 1, when he sustained an injury in Porto’s crunchy UEFA Champions League tie against Atletico Madrid.
The 25-year-old left-back was subsequently ruled out of action for at least a month after it was confirmed that had hurt his adductor muscle.
Sanusi has missed Porto’s last five games against Pacos Ferriera, Mafra, Boavista, and Chaves. And according to Record.pt, he would still be sidelined when the Portuguese champions square off against Vizela at Estadio do Dragao.
Nonetheless, Porto are still favourites to win the tie. In Sanusi’s absence, Brazilian Wendell has provided good cover.
Still, coach Sergio Conceicao will hope to get his star left-back when the Portugal Liga resumes on the 28th of December.
