Udinese of Italy central defender, William Troost-Ekong has stepped up his efforts to gain a positive verdict ahead of this weekend’s Serie A fixtures, as he has embarked on rounds of personal training in a bid to pass an impending fitness test.
After missing action for the Super Eagles against Seychelles on Saturday, due to injury, Troost-Ekong has his eyes on returning to action with Udinese against AS Torino this Sunday, and the Holland-born stopper hit the training ground on Monday.
This comes after the former Haugesund, KAA Gent and Bursaspor star had to withdraw from the Eagles’ squad to Seychelles, after suffering an injury in Udinese’s 1-0 loss to Fiorentina on September 2.
However, Udinese have now disclosed that Troost-Ekong underwent individual training on Monday along with two of his teammates, Nicholas Opoku and Antonin Barak.
He will now aim for the nod from the Udine-based club’s gaffer, Julio Velázquez, who has named him in each of the starting line-ups for the first three matches of the season.
Troost-Ekong could then be back for Udinese against their visitors from Torino on Sunday at Dacia Arena on match day four in the Serie A season.
