Ghana defender Lee Addy says he is pleased with the way he’s progressing in the treatment room.

The 23-year-old is on the mend after he suffered a serious knee injury during Dinamo Zagreb’s top-flight game against Rijeka early March.

The Ghanaian international is working on an individual programme and has not resumed training with the squad.

“I’m recuperating from the injury and I am happy with my progress so far,” he said

“It’s been terrible sitting on the sidelines but injury is part of the game.

“There is the possibility of returning to the pitch quicker-than-expected.

“I want to be back and get involved to help my side. The injury is just a minor setback.”

It is hoped he can get some match action under his belt before the end of the season and so give himself a late run for Ghana’s World Cup squad.

He has been out of the Black Stars since June 2012 when he was named in the squad which lost 1-0 to Zambia in Ndola in a 2014 World Cup qualifier.

Addy has made 16 league appearances for the Croatian outfit  this season and regarded a key player for the leaders.
