Enyimba and Nigeria junior international, Wasiu Alalade has undergone a successful surgery in Argentina.
Doctors in the undisclosed Argentine hospital, are reputed to be global specialists in correcting ankle problems.
Alalade, 20, picked the ankle injury while in the Flying Eagles camp, forcing him to miss the African championship, as well as coach Paul Aigbogun’s final squad for the FIFA U-20 World Cup finals in Poland, last August.
Alongside defender Ernest Governor, Alalade joined Enyimba two seasons ago from ABS (Abubakar Bukola Saraki) FC of Ilorin.
Early this year, Governor linked up with Lobi Stars on a season-long loan move. Alalade’s Enyimba contract will run out in October 2020.
Alalade is expected back in the country in few weeks from now and would sit out action for three months.
“The good news is that the surgery was successful,” offers an Enyimba official.
“We really thank God and pray also that his rehabilitation goes fast so he can join the rest of his teammates here at Enyimba.”
