Denizlispor's Super Eagles Midfielder Faces Spell On The Sidelines
Denizlispor have been dealt an injury blow ahead of their upcoming Turkish Super Lig clash against Besiktas with news that Nigeria international Eddy Onazi is set for a spell on the sidelines due to injury.

Turkish sports daily Fanatik is reporting that the Super Eagles star has been advised by club medics to stay away from the pitch for two to three weeks.

A  small tear was detected in the posterior muscle during medical examinations following the injury he suffered in Monday's 1-0 loss to Sivasspor.

Onazi, who came off the bench in the 46th minute, was himself replaced thirteen minutes later due to the injury.

The 27-year-old returned from a long-term injury layoff in December 2019, which saw him miss the Africa Cup of Nations and a large part of the first half of the 2019-2020 campaign.

This season, the former Lazio and Trabzonspor man has played ten games in all competitions, with eight in the colours of Denizlispor, whom he joined in the winter transfer market.
