Christian Atsu has not fully recovered from his injury.

Christian Atsu Not Fully Recovered ? Porto Coach

Ghana midfielder Christian Atsu is not playing regularly for Porto because he has not fully recovered from injury, says the Portuguese club?s coach. 

Vitor Pereira substituted the Ghana international in the 39th minute of their league match against Setubal which raised some eyebrows.

Atsu suffered a ankle injury in March that kept him out of the action for nearly three weeks.

The Ghanaian was also left on the bench in Sunday?s match with some fearing that the youngster has lost his place in the starting line-up.

Others also think that the delays in the Ghanaian extending his contract with Porto is the reason why they are reluctant in starting him.

But coach Pereira says the Ghanaian has not fully regained his fitness since suffering the injury during a league match in March.

?Atsu is still not fully recovered from the injury he had. It has long been a problem. In the match against Setubal he was not giving what I wanted to play in terms of tactics that?s why he was substituted.?

Atsu was on the bench when they played over the weekend.
