Mohammed's Afcon dream in jeopardy



e

The dream of in-form Ghana Premier League topscorer Yahaya Mohammed has been smashed, following confirmation from the FA that he will not go to Abu Dhabi due to injury.

He was a shoo-in for a position in the team to be in South Africa, supersport.com sources within the Ghana camp revealed on Friday morning.

A groin injury is responsible for the player's plight, accoring to a statement on the FA website, with the Amidaus Professional forward suffering a recurring injury. Following examination by the Black Stars medical staff, the damning news was announced.

Yahaya will be out for three-four weeks, and his family have told supersport.com that the player is "devastated and cannot do anything."

No player will be called to take the player's place, meaning that Kwesi Appiah leaves Ghana on Friday with just 25 players for Abu Dhabi, where there will be an eleven day pre-tournament camp.

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah said: “It’s a huge blow for the team, especially me. He has been in very good form and I was looking forward to working with him. he medical team will follow his recovery and I expect him to get well soon. He will be considered again once he returns to full fitness.”
