Majeed Waris to miss Rennes clash

Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris

Majeed Waris has been ruled out of Lorient's Ligue 1 fixture against Stade Rennes this weekend after injuring his thigh while on international duty.

The frontman was an injury doubt ahead of Ghana's friendly game against Canada last week Tuesday, having been withdrawn in the 74 minute of Lorient’s French Ligue 1 clash with Bordeaux before the international break for a suspected thigh problem.

Waris however appeared to have aggravated his thigh injury on national duty, and has since failed to recover to full fitness for the tie against Rennes on Saturday.

Having joined Les Merlus in the summer from Turkish side Trabzonspor, Waris has so far netted three times in six appearances, but his activities appear to have been blighted by injuries.

The striker suffered a hand injury on his debut against Bastia in August, consequently missing almost a month of action.
