“We did another test yesterday (Monday) and we were all certified clear to start training,” Azubuike told www.aclsports.com on Tuesday.

“We are currently outdoor in segments and maybe we will start group training next week.”

Azubuike’s side Başakşehir were locked on the same points at the summit of the Super Lig table with Tranzonspor before the league was called off after both teams’ clash on March 15.
