Elderson Echiejile is to undergo a scan later Wednesday to determine the extent of a hip injury he suffered on Tuesday night in Monaco’s 2-0 home win over RC Lens in the French Ligue 1.
The left-back, who has enjoyed a fine run at Monaco lately, limped off the pitch in the 84th minute and was replaced by Lucas Ocampos.
“I will have a scan on the injury today, but I do not think it is a serious injury,” he said.
Elderson first suffered the injury during an AFCON qualifier against South Africa in Cape Town and was sidelined briefly.
The Nigeria defender was ruled out of the World Cup in Brazil due to a muscle problem he suffered in a warm-up up game leading to Brazil 2014.
