Different tales on the fitness level have hit two Nigerian players of different generations, as former Super Eagles striker, Bartholomew Ogbeche has been hit by injury at his new club in Holland, while Real Betis of Spain midfielder, Nosa Igiebor returned to training with the club in midweek.
The sad part of the tale is for Ogbeche, as the former Paris Saint Germaine of France striker, who has also starred for several other top clubs, including Middlesbrough of England and Cadiz of Spain, was injured while in action for SC Cambuur, as they lost 2-1 at home to PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday night.
The 29-year-old Ogoja, Cross River State-born attacker was taken off in the 19th minute of the game and replaced with Michiel Hemmen after he appeared to have injured his knee.
PSV came from behind to win the encounter courtesy of goals from Jeffery Bruma and Jurgen Locadia in the 38th and 61st minutes respectively, which leaves Cambuur fifteenth on the Eredivisie table with 22 points from 22 games.
The glad part of the tale comes from Spain, as Igiebor, who got an injury relapse suffered an injury setback and concussed after taking a knock on his return to action for Betis as they beat Espanyol 2-0 on Sunday has resumed to full training with the squad.
Igiebor was relieved to learn after tests that the concussion was not deemed too serious and participated in training without any limitations on Wednesday, as Betis prepare ahead of Saturday’s La Liga clash with Valencia
