Asante Kotoko has provided latest injury update of key defender Ismail Ganiyu ahead of the team’s Ghana Premier League Week 33 game against Bechem United this weekend.
The Ghana defender is lacking match fitness and is racing against time to be fully ready for the game in Bechem.
“Our deputy captain is hoping to feature in Sunday’s Ghana Premier League penultimate clash at Bechem United, as he continues his recovery from a slight knee problem.” Kotoko’s physiotherapist Samuel Ankamah provided the update.
“The Black Stars center-back was an unused substitute on Tuesday as we edged out Asokwa Deportivo from the FA Cup Round of 16 with a 2:1 win at the Len Clays stadium in Obuasi and will have to prove his fitness to be part of Barreto’s squad for the trip to Bechem.
Ganiyu was involved in a light training session at Adako Jachie as we began preparations for this weekend’s matchday-33 game.” the clubs added.
