Odemwingie injured again

Nigerian striker, Osaze Odemwingie, will be out of action for at least two weeks as his English Premier League side, Stoke City, confirmed on Thursday that he is down with a hamstring strain.

Stoke City Boss, Mark Hughes, described the latest injury setback for Odemwingie as quite unfortunate particularly as the Nigerian striker did so much work in the pre-season with the hope of hitting the ground running in the new campaign.

“Unfortunately Peter has got a hamstring strain and is likely to miss the next couple of weeks,” Hughes said at the pre-match press conference on Thursday.

“It’s disappointing for him because he has worked tremendously hard throughout pre-season,” he added.

Odemwingie endured a frustrating 2014/15 campaign after suffering knee ligament damage in the 1-0 triumph over Manchester City last August 2014.

It was gathered that the latest injury for the 33-year old happened in training.

Odemwingie came off the bench against Liverpool in last Sunday’s EPL curtain-raiser, but will take no part in Saturday’s trip to White Hart Lane where Stoke City will take on Tottenham Hotspurs.
