Sunday Adetunji in Abia Warriors Colours 
One of the top scorers in the Nigeria Professional Football League last season, Sunday Adetunji has resumed training with his club, Abia Warriors of Umuahia after being sidelined by injury for four months.

The former Shooting Stars of Ibadan hitman, who scored 14 goals in 26 matches for the Warriors before the injury,  ended his season early in Makurdi when he broke his forearm after landing awkwardly as he leapt very high to nod in his second goal in Abia Warriors' historic 4-2 away win over Lobi Stars at the Aper Aku Stadium in a week 33 action of the NPFL.

After receiving treatment at the Benue State University Teaching Hospital, Makurdi, he was later transferred to the Federal Medical Centre, Umuahia where a team of doctors successfully joined both ends of the broken bones and since that time in August, he never kicked the ball again as he recuperated.

But he has resumed training with his team mates. Head of Abia Warriors Medical Team, Dr Enyinnaya Anozie said Adetunji only resumed "light training"  adding that it would still take some weeks before he could regain match fitness.

Sunday Aetunji Lying on the hospital bed with Emeka Inyama
On his own, Adetunji who has been in high spirit said it was a very difficult period for him.
"Actually, I feel great to be back because it's not easy being out for months. I'm a kind of player who would always want to be on the pitch playing, so it was not easy for me watching from the sidelines but I thank God that I'm back and strong.

On the injury he said, " I never expected it to happen to me but I believe in fate on the affairs of men so it happened but I have come over it and I'm back".

He expressed appreciation at the solidarity he received from people from all walks of life during the period particularly  the Abia Warriors family led by the Chairman, Chief Emeka Inyama who he said did everything humanly possible to ensure he returned to action as soon as possible.

Adetunji said he would pay them back by playing and scoring more goals for the club anytime he is selected to wear the Abia Warriors colours.
