Ghanaian defender Baba Abdul-Rahman will travel to Germany Thursday to undergo further tests and possible surgery over a knee injury he suffered at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Gabon, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) announced on Thursday.

The GFA took the decision in consultation with his German club, Schalke, after tests were carried out on the injury in the Gabonese capital of Libreville on Wednesday.

The left-back suffered the knee problem during the Black Stars’ 1-0 win over Uganda in Group D of the competition.

With no MRI facilities in Port Gentil, the Black Stars player had to travel to Librevile for the tests to be carried out before the full extent of injury was determined.

The side’s medical team revealed that the defender suffered “a rupture of the meniscus and a particular tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with fluid collection in the left knee,” according to a release issued by the federation.

Rahman will be accompanied by a Ghana team official on the journey to Germany Thursday evening.

The GFA said it would offer all the support to the dedicated and hardworking Baba Rahman on his road to recovery. Enditem
