Odemwingie to undergo knee surgery

Nigeria forward, Peter Odemwingie, has revealed
that a surgery is now “required” for his injured
cruciate knee ligament.
Odemwingie is now expected to miss a larger period
of the current season following the injury he
sustained in Stoke City’s 1-0 win at Manchester City
on Saturday.
Reports suggest that the former Bendel Insurance
man could be out for up to 10 months.
The 33-year-old Nigerian confirmed on Tuesday that
he faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines, as “I will
miss many games of the season.”
The former Cardiff City and West Brom man wrote
on his Twitter account: “It’s confirmed now surgery is
required. Really gutted I will miss many games of the
season. (I) Will work hard to be back as early as
possible.
“We have a strong squad that will do great in the
league and I will be back well in time for the
Wembley finals!”
Initially Odemwingie’s injury was perceived to be a
minor knock after he was stretchered off the pitch in
Stoke City’s famous win at the Etihad over the
weekend.
But the injury to Odemwingie, who is considered an
important figure at Stoke City, forced the club’s
manager, Mark Hughes, to sign Moroccan winger,
Oussama Assaidi, on loan from Liverpool on the
deadline day of the summer transfer window.
