Roma highly talented Nigerian teen right full back Nura Abdullahi has made a quicker than expected recovery from surgery, after injury ended his campaign last season.

Nura was supposed to be out for six months, but the Football Academy Abuja prospect posted a video of himself running under the supervision of coaches of Roma on his instagram page.

Known for his pace, attacking and defensive abilities, he was signed permanently by Roma at the end of last season after a successful spell on loan from Serie B side Spezia.

18 year old Nura who is a childhood friend to Sadiq Umar who recently left Roma on loan to Bologna, is viewed as one of the best teen right full back in Europe.

Last season shortly after returning from a correction surgery, he became a top target for Spanish La-Liga side Barcelona, after impressing for the Primavera team of Roma in a UEFA Youth League game against the Catalans.
