Enyimba skipper, Mfon Udoh expresses relief as he nears a return to action

The People’s Elephant’s attacker copped an injury while on duties with the Super Eagles B side in their African Nations Championship qualifiers against Benin Republic and after a brief comeback, Udoh sustained another injury which has kept him away since the latter part of last season.

However, he reveals that he has resumed light training which would usher his return to first-team action.

“It has really been tough for me but I thank God for everything. I must admit that I never expected that injury would keep me out for so long. I actually recovered from the one I had in the Eagles’ camp but I got another complaint,” Udoh told Goal.

“I am happy that I have started light training and that very soon I will start serious training with my teammates. It was not a pleasant experience at all because I have never been injured for this long before.

“I know that I can still regain my incredible form of old. It was a shame that injury thwarted my ambition of having a generally good season. I know things will be different for me this coming season.”
