A member of the Ghana Football Association Medical Team Dr. Prince Pambo has made known the cause of Black Stars Captain Asamoah Gyan’s persistent injuries.
According to Dr. Pambo the former Shangai SIPG striker’s persistent injuries is as a result him being in the game for a long period .
He adds that Gyan’s position as an attacker also exposes him to a lot of dangerous tackles hence his continuous injuries.
“Normally strikers are prone to injuries more than defenders and midfielders and with Asamoah Gyan one thing I could attribute his injury to is the fact that he has played football for a very long time and the longer you have played , the easier you sustain much injuries. It has got to a point where some of his joints have become weak spots because of how powerful and proactive he has been as a player in the game”, He told Accra based Kasapa FM.
He however stated that with the right recovery development Gyan can still return to active football in a grand style.
Added Dr. Prince Pambo “I believe Asamoah can bounce back stronger than before through proper rehabilitation”,
Gyan who was stretched off after just 17 minutes for his club Al Ahli during a league game against Al Jazira last Saturday after picking up a muscle injury will be absent from active football for the next three weeks.
Asamoah Gyan missed Ghana’s Russia 2018 World cup qualifier match 2-0 defeat to Egypt in Alexandra.
