A member of the Ghana Football Association Medical Team Dr. Prince Pambo has revealed the cause of Black Stars Captain Asamoah Gyan’s persistent injuries.
Dr. Prince Pambo speaking to Kasapa Sports exclusively from Germany said Gyan’s persistent injuries is due to the fact that he has been in the game for quite a long time and his positition as a striker also exposes him to a lot of dangerous tackles.
“Normally strikers are prone to injuries more than defenders and midfielders and with Asamoah Gyan one thing I could attribute his injury to is the fact that he has played football for a very long time and the longer you have played , the easier you sustain much injuries. It has got to a point where some of his joints have become weak spots because of how powerful and proactive he has been as a player in the game”, he explained.
The astute medical professional was however of the belief that with the right recovery process Gyan can still bounce back stronger.
“I believe Asamoah can bounce back stronger than before through proper rehabilitation”, Dr. Prince Pambo stated.
The Ghana captain was stretchered off after just 17 minutes during a league match against Al Jazira last Saturday after picking up a muscle injury.
Al Ahli striker Gyan will spend three weeks in the treatment room after suffering another injury setback.
