Ghana striker Boakye for MRI scan at AFCON on stubborn ankle injury

Posted On Wednesday, 23rd January 2013

Richmond-Boakye will undergo an MRI scan on Wednesday

Ghana striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom will undergo further tests on Wednesday to check on his troublesome ankle injury.

Ghana team doctor Baba Adam will accompany the Sassuolo player to a local hospital in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth for an MRI scan.

The youngster twisted his left ankle at the team’s pre-tournament training in Abu Dhabi two weeks.

Boakye has been training on his own since the Black Stars arrived in South Africa for the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 19-year-old was restricted to jogging during Tuesday’s training session at the Nelson Mandela University.

“It is Richmond’s response I will say is a little bit slow so tomorrow (Wednesday) I’m sending him back to the hospital,” team doctor Adam said.

“We will do an MRI and see if there’s something we are missing. Otherwise I think giving what we have seen now, in four to five days he should be up and running.”

Boakye is unavailable for selection for Thursday’s crucial Group B match against Mali.

    Why we are sweating on Boakye’s injury? Asamoah the uncomfortable Gyan is not trusted with banging goals. He is as flat as a defender in front of goal. Boakye, u will be fit so that this careless thing can watch u play

    @GH FUO,THINK BIG.FOR SOME TIME NOW I HAVE BEEN READING YOUR COMMENTS.I THINK THIS IS THE BEST TIME FOR ME TO REPLY YOU.I DON’T THINK YOU KNOW MUCH ABOUT SOCCER ALL YOU KNOW IS TO TALK BULL SHIT.

  6. Muiz says:

    A A you see why we’ve been advicing u n you refuse to listen. You went to a tournament of such magnitude with only three strickers. Now one is nt reliable, one is injured and the other one is nt trusted. Still experimenting the left back position in a tournament. You’ve left your egos n emotions controll u to do things ön your own when the nation matters most.. Select players the nation wants u rather selected players u want. Black Stars is a national asset not an individual property.
