The Nigeria international could not complete the tie against his former club owing to injury but the youngster is hopeful he will return even stronger

Henry Onyekuru picked an injury in Anderlecht’s 1-0 win over Eupen in Saturday’s First Division A clash at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.

Francis Amuzu scored the solitary goal to help the Purple and White secure their 11th league win this season.

The Everton loanee who made his 28th appearance for Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s side was replaced by Ivan Obradovic in the 78th minute after he got injured.

And the forward has taken to the social media to allay any fear as he is optimistic about bouncing back ‘fitter and stronger', soon.
