Ghana midfielder Alfred Duncan has expressed excitement after returning from injury to help Sassuolo defeat Chievo Verona in the Serie A on Sunday.
The former Ghana U-20 star featured in his first game since picking an injury against Empoli and was pivotal in the Novredi’s 2-0 win over Chievo.
After the game the 25-year-old posted on his official Twitter handle: “Feels good to be back in action but mostly for the win we have been looking up to Sassuolo.”
The midfielder’s return was a huge boost for the Novredi who were back to winning ways after a difficult spell without the Ghanaian.
Duncan lasted 63 minutes and was replaced Giangcomo Magnani with Sassuolo a goal up.
Fredrico De Francesco scored the opener on 42 minutes with a brilliant strike.
Emmanuel Giancherrini scored a bizarre last-minute own goal to provide the travelling Sassuolo side with all three points.
Alfred Duncan’s compatriot Kevin Prince Boateng also played 70 minutes of the game.
