Anderlecht’s Henry Onyekuru delighted after returning to training

The forward accused the Purple and White of shattering his hope of playing in the global showpiece

Henry Onyekuru is delighted after returning to training following a three-month layoff.

The 20-year-old got injured three days before Christmas while playing for Anderlecht against his former club Eupen after colliding with goalkeeper Hendrik Van Crombrugge.

However, the youngster flew to his parent club, Everton for rehabilitation and the forward took to the social media to show his excitement on his return to the pitch.

“I am so grateful to be able to be back running and back with the ball at my feet,” Onyekuru tweeted.

“It’s been a journey, thank you all for your prayers and support! The Lord is truely my strength.”
