Nassarawa United midfielder Debekeme Tamarakuro says he hopes to return for the remaining games. The former Warri Wolves star is still receiving treatment for the knee ligament injury he sustained during training just two days before their league game against Lobi Stars in September.
Tamarakuro underwent tests at Hilltop Hospital, Lafia last week and returned there yesterday for the results to ascertain the level of injury. He told National Mirror he had been on pills since he copped the injury but ruled out surgery.
He has been unavailable for selection for seven games since he copped the injury and with just three games left for the season to end, it’s left to be seen if the Warri- born star will recover to play a part.
“I’m very optimistic that I will be available for at least a game before the season ends but the injury is not that serious,” Tamarakuro said.
“It hasn’t been easy since I copped the injury and for the fact that it was during a training session made it more difficult for me.
“The treatment has been fine and I’m responding well. I wish I was available for all the games I missed because our position on the table isn’t too good.”
