Nigeria winger, Akinkunmi Amoo has suffered an injury in pre-season training and will be sidelined for an unknown period, his Danish club, FC Copenhagen confirmed on Tuesday.
Amoo, 20, copped the injury during the team’s training camp in the Netherlands.
The former Golden Eaglets star missed Copenhagen’s friendlies against Feyenoord and Club Brugge as a result of the setback.
”Akinkunmi Amoo, unfortunately, sustained an injury during FC Copenhagen’s training camp in the Netherlands, which is why he didn’t participate in our friendly games against Feyenoord or Club Brugge,” the club confirmed.
“Amoo, 20, will remain sidelined for the coming period. He played 45 minutes against Silkeborg during a training game last month, and is now rehabilitating at Number 10 with the FCK medical team.”
The player joined the Danish Superliga club from Swedish outfit, Hammarby in January this year.
He penned a five-year contract with a record fee of around €4.4m.
Amoo was in Nigeria’s squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoffs against Ghana in March.
