Dede assures fans of quick injury return

Ghana talented midfielder Andre Ayew has assured Ghanaians of his swift return to action after visiting Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi in Accra on Tuesday evening to update him on his injury progress following his successful knee surgery.

The Marseille superstar visited Nyantakyi in his office in Accra to share his injury experience which has kept him out of action for about two months.

The Ghana international has been out of action since picking up a knee injury during the Black Stars’ final 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Egypt in November of last year.

Ayew, who is in Accra, has been receiving treatment and has been boosted by the rate of his recovery.

After his eleventh physiotherapy session on Tuesday, Ayew was very positive of returning from injury in earnest for first team football.

“I am not too far away from full recovery,” Andre Ayew told Ghana FA’s website on what he briefed Nyantakyi about his injury situation.

“The physiotherapy sessions are going well and my condition is far better than what was anticipated, so I am delighted by that.”

But despite positive news regarding his recovery, Andre Ayew is not bringing forward his expected date of return.

“Though I am happy with the progress, I am following a strict plan aimed at getting me fully healed and ready for the game. It’s been positive so far and I pray it continues that way.

“I am very grateful to the doctors, physiotherapists, my family, colleagues and all the fans who continue to wish me well.

“I hope the New Year bring us all greater success especially at the World Cup,” the Marseille player said.
