Enugu Rangers striker, Ifeanyi Egwim, is preparing to make his return to action, following a horrific leg break on the final day of last season’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) .
The 26-year-old has not played since he was stretchered off during the 4-0 home win oevr El-Kanemi Warriors on November 2, 2016.
Egwim has since undergone treatment at the National Orthopaedic Hospital in Enugu and absolved El-Kanemi goalkeeper Kazeem Yekeen of any blame for the incident.
“There was no contact with the goalkeeper. What happened was that I twisted my leg and landed on my shin,” he told Naija Made, SuperSport TV’s magazine programme for the NPFL.
“I would say that something else would have happened but I will say this has to be a divine incident. In my life I have never played before such a crowd in my professional career.
“I am really grateful to the governor of Enugu State for showing concern and taking care of my bills. My wife has been my strength as she has stood by me.
“I will definitely come back. I am strong now but not too strong to start training. I believe from next month (February) I will start training and by first or second week of March I will join the team in training.”
