FC ST Gallen and Black Stars defender Musah Nuhu has finally recovered fully from his knee injury which has sidelined him for almost a year now and returned to training for the first time this week.
The former WAFA boy sustained an injury in the Black Stars camp in June last year in Dubai prior to their preparations towards the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Checks after his injury proved he’s had problem in his knee which seemed like sustaining an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury.
Not only did he miss the AFCON, he also went on to be left out of coach Ibrahim Tanko’s Black Meteors squad that represented the country in the Africa U-23 Championship which was also staged in Egypt last year in November. This obviously was a huge blow and a setback for a young and prospect centre-back who will want to maintain his status at national team level.
The 23 year old completed a successful surgery in June last year in Switzerland. His rehabilitation was somehow slow leaving him on sideline for 11 solid months. Thankfully he’s recovered fully and commenced training last Monday.
However, the Swiss top flight league is still yet to return after facing indefinite suspension due to the COVID-19. The Bolga boy is now fit and will be ready for action should the league resume from anytime now.
