Saka back to training Monday



Fast recovering Enyimba playmaker, Ayo Saka is set to rejoin his teammates for full scale training on Monday.

The Nigerian Olympic team midfielder has been on isolated light training since Thursday, April 12.

<>The former Ocean Boys' midfielder, who switched allegiance to the Aba Elephant at the start of 2011/2012 season, told SuperSport.com that he has been given a clean bill of health by the doctors to resume unhindered training on Monday.

"I've been certified fit by the doctor, and come on Monday, April 23 I will resume training with my teammates. This is the last stage to returning to full match action.

"For about two weeks I've been observing routine of light training and the progress has been massive.

"I look forward to Monday with keen interest to start once again to train with my mates.

"I'm happy that the weeks of lay off is about coming to a successful end. It's tough and traumatic to sit idle watching your mates kick a ball and the best you can do is to clap your hands for them.

"I can't wait to have a feel of competitive game once again. The knee healed faster to the astonishment of the medical crew, my coaches and teammates," he said.

Saka said he wants to get back to action to help out in Enyimba's quest for laurel.

"I look forward to rejoining my mates shortly to contribute my quota in the race for title.

"Of course, Enyimba want to be Nigerian and African champions once again," he said.

Saka cupped a knee ligament injury on Matchday 11 against Sunshine Stars in Ijebu-Ode.

The cruciate ligament injury relapsed during his side's training session in Aba which has kept him out of action.

Enyimba restarted the season losing 0-1 at bottom-placed Rising Stars in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday.
