Henry Onyekuru’s long-awaited comeback game will have to wait after Anderlecht coach said he is not ready yet to return for tomorrow’s high-profile championship playoff at Club Brugge.
The Nigeria international was widely expected to make his comeback game at Club Brugge after more than five months out with a major knee injury.
He played 60 minutes for the Anderlecht juniors without any problems to further boost his chances of seeing action.
However, Anderlecht coach Hien Vanhaezebrouck said Everton loanee Onyekuru will not be ready against Club Brugge.
“Onyekuru is not ready yet, Obradovic and Chipciu are out of the game,” he disclosed.
Champions Anderlecht are chasing leaders Club Brugge in the playoffs.
