Revelation at the start of the season with Stade Rennais, Kamaldeen Sulemana has been on fire much less for a few weeks.
Blame it on a back injury he can’t get out of. Absent from the field since the beginning of February, the Ghanaian international confided in the official website of the SRFC and admitted that he was going through the most difficult moment of his young career (20 years old).
“It’s difficult. There are ups and downs. I’m happy when the team has results and plays well but it’s hard not to take part and just watch the games in front of the TV or sitting in the stadium. I would like to be on the pitch and in the locker room doing what I know how to do and what I like to do. I cannot be satisfied. (…) This is the first time I’ve been stopped for so long in my professional career.
I didn’t have a problem when I was in Denmark. This injury is longer than expected. It’s a bit of a roller coaster. At the start of the injury , after two weeks, I felt good. I thought I could be back soon. You start running again, you come back to the field and there you feel pain. Then you work hard again, you do whatever it takes to come back. and the pains come back again.
When you have high hopes and it’s still not the time to come back, it’s hard to accept. I would have preferred someone to tell me, you have three or four months, it’s better for the mind. But with this injury, it’s impossible to be able to say that kind of thing. There, every two weeks, the return is postponed. But I’m still part of the team.
Loïc Badé is back, Jérémy Doku and I will also be back soon. They are two players who deserve to return to their best level. It’s a pleasure to work with them”, he said.
For his first season in Ligue 1, Kamaldeen Sulemana scored 4 goals in 20 games. It remains to be seen whether he will be able to improve this total by the end of the season.
