Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun has been reported injured yet again, for the second time in a month, by his club Mainz 05, NaijaFootballPlus.com reports.
The Bundesliga side made this revelation on their verified Twitter handle, stating that Balogun fractured his left hand and surgery has been performed on injury.
“@LeonBalogun suffered a fracture to his left hand on Friday and has undergone surgery. Luckily, he will be able to carry on playing. Get well soon, Leon!”
He sat out of the team’s Saturday 1-0 win over FC Koln because of the fracture.
The other half of the beloved Super Eagles center back pairing admiringly nicknamed “Oyinbo wall” had previously shattered his cheekbone late last month which forced him to wear a mask while representing Nigeria last week.
