AFCON 2017: Ghana FA Confirms Baba Rahman’s Trip To Germany After AFCON Injury

Ghana defender Baba Abdul-Rahman will travel to Germany today (Thursday) to undergo further tests and possible surgery over a knee injury he suffered at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

Ghana Football Association (GFA) took the decision in consultation with his club Schalke after tests were carried out on the injury in the Gabonese capital of Libreville on Wednesday.

The Ghana medical team led by Dr. Adam Baba revealed that the defender suffered “a rupture of the meniscus and a particular tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with fluid collection in the left knee.”

A Ghana team official will accompany the defender on the journey to Germany on Thursday evening.

The GFA will offer all the support to the dedicated and hardworking Baba Rahman on his road to recovery.

The Black Stars player was accompanied by Dr. Baba to Libreville on Wednesday from the team’s base of Port Gentil.

With no MRI facilities in Port Gentil, the Black Stars player had to travel to Librevile for the tests to be carried out before the full extent of injury was determined.

The left-back suffered the knee problem during the Black Stars 1-0 win over Uganda in Group D.
