Victor Boniface in Bayer Leverkusen training
After a three-month injury layoff, Super Eagles striker Victor Boniface has made a triumphant return to full training with Bayer Leverkusen, just in time for the final stretch of the season. Boniface, who had been sidelined with an adductor injury since the start of the year, is set to bolster Leverkusen’s attacking options as they aim to secure the Bundesliga title and progress in the Europa Cup.
Having enjoyed a stellar start to his tenure at Leverkusen, recording 16 goals and eight assists in 23 appearances, the 23-year-old’s return is eagerly anticipated by fans and teammates alike. His impressive performances earned him accolades such as back-to-back Bundesliga Rookie of the Month awards and a call-up to the Super Eagles squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
While initially projected to return in early April, Boniface’s swift recovery has exceeded expectations, with coach Xabi Alonso hinting at an earlier comeback. Leverkusen’s unbeaten status in Europe’s top five leagues further emphasizes the significance of Boniface’s return, as they aim to maintain their title challenge and Europa Cup aspirations.
With Leverkusen set to face Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga and West Ham in the Europa Cup quarter-finals, Boniface’s availability provides a timely boost for the team. As they strive for success on both domestic and continental fronts, Leverkusen will look to Boniface to provide the goals necessary to secure silverware in the season’s closing stages.
