Officials of Israeli Ligat Limut side, Maccabi Tel Aviv, fear that their Nigerian midfielder Nosa Igiebor may have to undergo operation for a troublesome knee injury.
Igiebor was injured in the Uefa Champions League match with Swiss side, FC Basel, a few weeks ago and even though he is recuperating on schedule, there are still pains in the region which is not suppose to be the case.
“The pain in Nosa’s knee is refusing to ease. He is working hard to get fit and except it goes he cannot get back to action,” an official of the club told Israeli sports website, one.co.il.
“Knees are a very complex thing. We can’t see what the issue is for now and that area is a bit complicated.
“It might be a ligament thing or even a meniscus and maybe they have a hand in hiding what is causing the pain.”
Maccabi Tel Aviv are afraid that if the pain does not stop and Igiebor fails to recover on time then he may probably have to undergo a medical procedure, but they are hoping to avoid an operation.
