An image of the injured Super Eagles striker Sadiq Umar has surfaced online.

In the said image, the 25-year-old has been captured with two clutches and a bandage on his left knee.

The Nigerian international has been diagnosed with a rupture in the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) after suffering an injury during Real Sociedad's 2-1 loss to Getafe on Sunday, September 11.

The ex-UD Almeria forward was subbed off in the 36th minute in what was his second La Liga outing for his new club.

Several reports suggest that the gangling striker will be out for the remainder of the season.

Sadiq joined Real Sociedad last month for a reported fee of 20 million euros plus add-ons.
