Daily Trust - - SPORT -

In­jured Su­per Ea­gles star, Leon Aderemi Ba­lo­gun of Ger­man side, For­tuna Dus­sel­dorf, has re­vealed that in two weeks time he should be fit to run like a foot­baller.

Su­per Ea­gles Me­dia Of­fi­cer Ben Alaiya quoted Ba­lo­gun as say­ing from his Ger­man base as say­ing that his re­cov­ery has been phenom­e­nal thanks to the sup­port of his Ger­man club­side and those of the Nigeria Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion. “As I speak with you, I just came back from the gym”, the told Su­per Ea­gles Me­dia Of­fi­cer; Ben Alaiya. He continues, “and it didn’t just start I have been go­ing through the rou­tine and should be do­ing bike next week, but all the medics have said is that I should take it a step at a time and hope­fully I should be do­ing ‘Cross Trainer’ next week, which should pre­pare me for phys­i­cal run­ning in two weeks time, but I have re­moved all en­cum­brances on my toe and walk freely”, he said.

As he has al­ways main­tained, Ba­lo­gun thanked the lead­er­ship of the Nigeria Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion headed by Al­haji Aminu Maigari, for not only vis­it­ing him through Tech­ni­cal Com­mit­tee boss, Christo­pher Green, but for stand­ing by him through thick and thin. He also re­vealed that Head Coach, Stephen Keshi has been in con­stant touch with him and he was sure that he will make a great im­pact in the na­tional team, if he was selected for the Mun­dial 2014 cham­pi­onship.
