Ghana striker Kwesi Appiah set to fly back to UK for treatment

Ghana striker Kwesi Appiah is awaiting clearance from his personal doctor before traveling back to the UK to continue with treatment of a recent injury setback.

The Crystal Palace player is suspected to have suffered a cruciate ligament injury which sees him ruled out of Ghana’s opening 2017 AFCON qualifier against Mauritius on Sunday .

Appiah however remains in Accra as the rest of the team continue with preparations towards the game to be played at the Accra Sports Stadium.

But GFA spokesman Ibrahim Sannie-Daara has confirmed the striker is billed to return to his base in the UK to continue with his treatment.

‘Kwesi [Appiah] will need to go back to the UK to continue with his treatment,’ Ghana FA spokesman Ibrahim Sannie-Daara said.

‘Unfortunately his personal doctor is on holidays and therefore he has to wait a while. He is still in Accra.’

Appiah misses an opportunity to play his first competitive match for the Black Stars before the Ghanaian crowd with his latest injury setback.

The 24-year-old justified his surprise inclusion into the Ghana squad for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations with a goal in the lead up to Ghana’s second-place finish in Equatorial Guinea.
