Super Eagles ace, Emmanuel Emenike last weekend returned to Moscow after he had gone on doctors knives in Italy.
The Spartak Moscow striker, two weeks ago, injured his meniscus on his knee after he collided with Anji Makhachkala’s on rushing goalkeeper. Emenike who is expected to be out for four to six weeks, on Monday, arrived in Tarasovku where he’s to begin his rehabilitation and also carry out various physiotherapeutic procedures under close supervision from Spartak Moscow’s medical staff.
Emenike, who finished as joint top scorer at February’s African Nations Cup, won by Nigeria, will miss his country’s World Cup qualifiers against Kenya and Namibia next month. Nigeria and Malawi top Africa’s Group F with five points each from three matches. Emenike, who turns 26 next week, will also miss the end of the Russian league season, with just four matches remaining.
