Ferocious hitman, Sadiq Umar played in his second game in one week for Real Sociedad in their 0-1 win over Celta Vigo, a few days after leaving the camp of the Super Eagles.
The 26 year old featured for all 90 minutes in the game, to make his 18th La Liga appearance of the season. He constituted a menace to the defence line of the host, causing them anguish all afternoon.
After the game, he said that "It feels good to be back and playing football again. The AFCON saga is in the past now, and I have shifted my attention to my club, as I will work hard to ensure we finish in a good position and achieve our season's objectives."
"We got a valuable away victory at Celta and we will be hoping to consolidate on that result in our next game," he added.
Sociedad are currently sixth on the log, 6 points behind Barcelona, who are occupying the last Champions League position and three points behind Atletico Madrid in fifth place.
