RUPTURED TENDON! Obafemi Martins has successful surgery in United Kingdom


Shanghai Shenhua striker, Obafemi Martins, has undergone a successful surgery on his ruptured quadriceps tendon in the United Kingdom.

Martins, who had hoped for a possible recall to the Super Eagles, injured his tendon during Shenhua’s Asian Champions League game against Kashima Antlers which ended 2-2 in midweek.

A Shanghai Shenhua’s Instagram account posted a picture of Martins’ on the bed with his right leg heavily strapped.

“Martins had a successful surgery in the UK,” the account wrote. The message and photo were also posted on Twitter on Sunday.

Martins will be out for seven months.
