Bayer Leverkusen forward, Victor Boniface, can’t wait to return to the pitch following his return to full training after he suffered an injury during Nigeria’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations preparation camp in January.

The 23-year-old was initially expected to be sidelined till around April but has now made a quick recovery from the injury and he is in line to feature in Leverkusen’s Bundesliga clash with TSG Hoffenheim this weekend.

Ahead of the match-day 27 game, Boniface acknowledged he is eager to play for his club again.

“The team did very well without me. When I came to Leverkusen, I said that I don’t look at rankings or individual scores,” Boniface said via Sport Bild.

“Of course, goals and assists are important, but the most important thing for me is to be able to help the team with my style of play and simply have fun. I really miss being on the pitch with my teammates and hope to be back soon.”

Before his injury, he registered 16 goals and eight assists in 23 appearances across all competitions for Die Werkself this season.

Boniface’s return will further drive Leverkusen’s first Bundesliga title chase as they are still unbeaten after 26 matches and they currently hold a 10-point lead ahead Bayern Munich.
