Uzoenyi sets for Sundowns return
Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Ejike Uzoenyi, is expected to arrive in South Africa next week after his loan deal at Enugu Rangers officially expired, kickOffNigeria.com reports.
The speedy winger has been given an extended break following his participation at the 2014 FIFA World Cup with the Super Eagles and though he is still in Nigeria, he will not continue with Rangers when the Nigerian Premier League resumes next week.
Sundowns had confirmed that the 22-year-old winger will return to Chloorkop next week.
Uzoenyi’s handlers have also confirmed that he has been given a longer break to enable him to recover from the effects of playing non-stop football for the past 18 months.
“He [Uzoenyi] is still in Nigeria but his loan deal at Rangers expired on June 30. He should now be heading to his parent club Sundowns and will actually be reporting for training within the next 10 days because he has played a lot of football over the past year,” one of his representatives told kickOffNigeria.com.
