Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong will make a return to Udinese in Sunday’s Serie A away clash against Frosinone at the Stadio Benito Stirpe after spending two weeks on the sidelines.
Troost-Ekong injured his adductor in Udinese’s 1-1 draw against Sassuolo last month and has not featured for the club ever since.
The injury forced him to miss the club’s 2-0 loss to Atalanta and their goalless home draw with Inter Milan last weekend.
The 25-year-old returned to full training with his teammates on Thursday and is set to start the game against Frosinone.
Udinese manager Igor Tudor said: “William Troost-Ekong and he’ll be involved tomorrow. We have a wealth of options in defence now. We’ve worked on our intensity this week so that we’re ready for what is a crucial game for us,” Igor told reporters on Saturday.
Troost-Ekong who has been ever present for the club this season has made 32 league appearances for Igor Tudor’s men.
Udinese are currently 17th on the Serie A table, a place above the relegation zone.
