Juventus have confirmed that Ghanaian Kwadwo Asamoah’s knee surgery was a success and expect the player to return to action in 45 days.
The 27-year-old ruptured his meniscus cartilage in a 1-0 win away to Palermo this past weekend – yet another setback for a player who has spent most of the last two years on the sidelines due to injury.
While the injury means Asamoah will not feature for the Black Stars in their upcoming 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Uganda and Egypt in October and November, he is at least expected to return in approximately six weeks’ time.
Kwadwo Asamoah today underwent successful meniscectomy surgery on his right knee,” Juventus confirmed on their official website on Monday.
“The operation was conducted by Professor Cugat in Barcelona in the presence of Juventus club doctor Claudio Rigo.
“The midfielder will begin his rehabilitation programme immediately and the timeframe for his return to action remains the same as originally estimated, namely around 45 days.”
