Super Eagles star reveals he is fit and ready to play

Super Eagles winger, Samuel Kalu has revealed that he is physically fit after spending some time on the sidelines due to injury.

The talented winger has been out of action for more than for weeks due to a recurring thigh injury he sustained in a French Ligue 1 game. Kalu has now disclosed that he is ready to play again and he is looking forward to the new season.

Speaking to Teamnigeriauk via a live Instagram interview, Kalu said: “I’m fit. I’m good now. I don’t know what next season holds but let’s see.”

The Nigerian would hope to live up to his potential next season. He only managed to score four goals in 20 Ligue 1 appearances in the just-concluded season.

Kalu missed the Super Eagles Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying fixtures against Benin and Lesotho in March due to injury but despite his return from injury, the recent double-header friendly against Cameroon was considered too early for him.

Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr will be delighted with Kalu’s return from injury and hopes he stays fit ahead of preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers where Nigeria is placed in Group C alongside Cape Verde, Liberia, and the Central African Republic.
