Ghana's Ebenezer Ofori picked up an injury last Sunday while in action for AIK in their crucial encounter against rivals Djurgarden in the Swedish top-flight league.

In what was a Matchday 11 fixture in the ongoing 2020 Swedish Allsvenskan campaign, the hardworking midfielder earned a starting role for his team at the Friends Arena.

Just after 33 minutes of play, Ebenezer Ofori had to be taken off after a nasty collision with a player of Djurgarden in the middle of the park.

With his position taken over by Tom Strannegard, AIK pushed for the crucial goal to earn all 3 points at the end of the 90 minutes.

Unfortunately, a solitary strike from Aslak Witry in the 77th minuted handed Djurgarden a narrow away win.

Though it is understood that Ebenezer Ofori’s injury is not that serious, checks have revealed that he will not be available for AIK’s next game.
