Katsina United striker Musa Suleman has returned to training after injury ruled him out of action for three months.
The lanky striker suffered a torn ligament against Lobi Stars at the Muhammoau Dikko Stadium in Katsina last season and has since be undergoing intensive treatment.
Katsina United team doctor Abu Sufianu said he expects Musa ‘Ronaldo’ to be fully back early in the new year.
“As you can see he’s back already, but not fully back and that is why he cannot train with the rest of the team,” Sufianu said.
“He has been placed under an intensive treatment since he sustained the torn ligament injury and he is responding well.
“Based on my record and our assessment of him, he will be back to full training by January and so he is expected to start the season with the team.”
The new NPFL season kicks off January 14.
