Injured Kumasi Asante Kotoko shot stopper Isaac Amoako is eagerly anticipating a return to the pitch after a long spell on the treatment table.
The crocked goalie went under the knife to correct a recurring injury in the offseason ahead of the 2016 domestic season.
Amoako joined the record domestic league champion in 2006 and has since won a flurry of title including four league trophies.
The experience safest pair of hands for the Reds rued the missed opportunity at joining his colleagues on the pitch as he continues to nurse a career threatening injury.
The acrobatic shot stopper refused to set a tentative time frame for his return but hinted at joining his colleagues anytime soon.
The returning injury-ravaged Amoako continued with his physio work and could build on the uncertain kick off of the 2016 season to play another starting role between the sticks for David Duncan charges.
He told sports crusader, “Everything is going on well with my rehabilitation ahead of my come back. I am still on my physio but I believe I will soon get back to the field. I do miss my colleagues and the pitch. I cannot, however, tell when I will come back”.
Amoako has established himself as one of the trusted safest pair gloves on the local scene in the past decade. A nine-year relationship with Kumasi Asante Kotoko has earned him numerous trophies including four successive league titles and the 2014 FA cup to boot as well.
