Umar Sadiq joined Real Sociedad for a fee in the region of €20 million, but he was unable to deliver his full ability owing to an injury setback
Real Sociedad is already making preparations for the upcoming 2023/24 season, to fortify their offensive options and solidify their position as a competitive force in the UEFA Champions League, Soccernet.ng reports.
Central to their plans is the desire to provide Umar Sadiq, who missed the entirety of the previous season due to injury, with a much-anticipated opportunity, according to reports from Fichajes.
Sadiq, who joined Real Sociedad last summer in a transfer reportedly worth €20 million, demonstrated immense promise from the outset.
Despite only featuring in five La Liga matches, he managed to find the back of the net three times, signalling his potential as a prolific striker. However, an unfortunate injury halted his progress and forced him to watch from the sidelines for almost the entire season.
Undeterred by the setback, the Spanish team is determined to place their faith in Sadiq once again, offering him the chance to reclaim his role as the leading striker for the upcoming season.
Real Sociedad’s decision to entrust Sadiq with such responsibility stems from their recognition of his initial impact and the untapped potential he possesses.
Meanwhile, the La Liga side and its supporters are eager to witness his redemption story unfold on the pitch, as he strives to fulfil his promise and spearhead the team’s offensive charge.
However, with renewed determination, Sadiq is set to seize his chance, make a lasting impact, and write his own redemption story in the upcoming season when the White-Blue tackles the elite European teams on the biggest stage.
