Rivers United goalkeeper Rotimi Sunday has made a full recovery from the hamstring injury that kept him sidelined from action for the last eight weeks.
The veteran shot-stopper suffered the injury on 3 June during Rivers United’s 2-1 loss to Ugandan club KCCA in a Caf Confederation Cup game.
The 37-year-old was replaced by Abiodun Akande after 25 minutes at the Phillip Omondi Stadium in Kampala, and has yet to kick a ball in anger ever since.
He has now been given the all clear by the Rivers United medical team to resume training following a full recovery.
“Rotimi has now returned to training and is now free to start playing competitively,” Chukwuemeka Agi, the Rivers United doctor told supersport.com.
United’s coaching team led by Stanley Eguma have, however rested the goalkeeper on Sunday against ABS FC in Ilorin. The games ended 0-0.
