Isaac Vorsah has returned to action after two years on the sidelines

Austrian club Liefering say they won’t rush Ghana defender Isaac Vorsah into playing full matches for the club after he made a return to the pitch after a two-year absence.

The 27-year-old returned to competitive action in Austria on Friday night after a two-year injury-induced absence which sparked concerns he could be made to play more matches.

The centre-back came off the bench to play for Liefering in their 5-1 hammering of FAC Wien in the Austrian second-tier league ending nearly three years of absence.

Vorsah has not played competitive football since playing for Red Bull Salzburg in their 2-1 Cup defeat against FC Pasching in May 2013.

Vorsah, a former TSG Hoffenheim defender, suffered injuries on his road to recovery from a problematic ankle injury but he finally recovered from injury but he was told by Salzburg to join their second string side in the Austrian second-tier.

Liefering say they will be careful about his recovery to ensure that he is fit in the long term.

“Isaac has been out of football for over two years and it is good he finally came back. He will be given ample time to integrate into the team and no one will put pressure on him,” a Liefering statement said on Friday after the game.

“He has lots of experience and will be very ideal for us with the season now taken shape. He will be allowed to break into the starting 11 at his own pace.”

Vorsah’s return to action is a massive boost for the Black Stars as his partnership with Jonathan Mensah or John Boye has been hailed as one of the best the country has ever had.

His towering figure accounted for the opponents’ inability to get past the Black Stars and his return could force some changes in the centre-back of the Ghana side.
