Ghanaian forward Raphael Dwamena has suffered a fresh heartbreaking setback to his career as Danish club Vejle Boldklub have detected another heart problem during a routine medical check, Sportsworldghana.com can reveal.
After the club’s promotion to the 3F Superligaen, Vejle Boldklub signed a contract with Raphael Dwamena from Spanish side UD Levante.
The Ghanaian attacker joined the Nørreskoven side after a heart operation in January, where the 25-year-old attacker had an ICD-Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator implanted.
The Ghana International’s situation has been continuously monitored by Vejle Boldklub’s health staff and medical team throughout the start-up, on the training ground and during the club’s matches.
There has now been a single case where Raphael Dwamena’s limit values when monitoring the heart have been too high, and this unfortunately also means that Vejle Boldklub must now take Dwamena off the field which will prevent the player from playing again this season.
Technical manager at Vejle Boldklub, Jacob Krüger, stated:
“There has now been one case where the limit values have been too high, we must, based on a health professional assessment as a club, take the consequence of. Raphael is therefore taken off the field. We are, of course, sorry on Raphael’s behalf, but the parties have been aware from the outset of the consequence that would have been the case if Raphael’s monitoring had exceeded the limit values in the measurement. Raphael Dwamena has in his short time in Vejle Boldklub shown a great human format, a professional approach to his profession and a desire to learn from his towards our young players. We will now help Raphael in the new situation.
The Ghana International Raphael Dwamena understands the decision and also spoke about his situation.
“I am truly grateful for the opportunity that Vejle Boldklub gave me to play football again. Now I have been taken off the field and am under medical supervision.”
” Despite not being able to be on the pitch, I still want to help the club achieve its goals. Therefore, I would also like to say to both my teammates, the staff and the fans that I am proud to be part of the Vejle Boldklub family”, he added.
The Ghanaian forward scored two goals in five games this season in the Danish Superligaen after joining this summer.
