Uzoho however said he is on the path to full recovery, using the medium to also thank God and his fans for the support and prayers so far.
Below is his post on Instagram:
“I never believed I could do without you for this long, tears rolling down my cheeks because I knew I would stay without you for a very long time.
I’m thankful to God for giving me the strength to do without you so far. I have one more step to work very hard to be reunited with you again.”
The 21-year-old, who has capped 16 times by the Nigerian national team is currently on loan to Cypriot club Omonia from Spanish Segunda club Deportivo de La Coruna.
