"I am back and better. I was in Germany for few days but I thank God I'm back to my base and ready to roll. To me I am ready to start player but I don't know what the coaches and the medical team have in store for me.

"I will hear from them on when I will be fully fit to start playing again. I have missed football and I cannot wait to start kicking it again," Emenike said.
