Sadiq Umar undergoes knee surgery

Super Eagles and Real Sociedad striker Umar Sadiq has undergone a successful knee operation, his club has confirmed.

The operation was to repair the ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Sadiq who joined Real Sociedad from Spanish La Liga side, UD Almeria for a club record fee of 20 million Euros, plus six million in potential add-ons on transfer deadline day injured his knee against Getafe in a Spanish La Liga match-day 5 clash on September 11.

The injury may likely keep him out of action for the rest of the season because of a lengthy post-surgery recovery time of 8 to 12 months.
