Super Eagles and Trabzonspor striker, Paul Ebere Onuachu, has returned to training with his club side after picking up an injury that left him out of action for a month, reports.

The 2.01m tall forward fractured his arm in Trabzonspor’s 1-0 win over Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday, February 28.

The 29-year-old Super Eagle, who is on loan from EFL Championship side, Southampton, took a month off football to focus on his recovery, and to help Trabzonspor gain as many points between now and the end of the season.

The Karadeniz Fırtınası are third on the Turkish Süper Lig table, three points above Besiktas, and are looking to finish the season strong in a bid to seal their UEFA Europa League spot as a place in next season’s Champions League has eluded them.

Trabzonspor continued their preparations for the Tümosan Konyaspor match, which will be played at the Medas Konya Büyükşehir stadium tomorrow.

As per Kuzeyanadolu, Onuachu took part in training, but with a strapped arm, meaning the striker is a doubt for Trabzonspor’s clash on the road to 16th place Konyaspor.

The former Club Brugge man has scored nine goals and assisted another three in seventeen league appearances for the seven-time Turkish Süper Lig winners.

His shoulder injury meant he couldn’t feature for the Super Eagles of Nigeria during the March International break that saw them taste victory against Ghana, and then a bitter aftertaste as they lost 2-0 to Mali in Morocco.
