Rahman to return to Germany after suffering bruised meniscus

Ghana left back Abdul Baba Rahman has been diagnosed of bruised meniscus, initial tests have confirmed.

The Schalke 04 man was flown to Libreville early on Wednesday morning to have a scan on his injury.

And the results have shown he has a bruised meniscus. He will fly to Germany for further tests which could put his participation in the tournament into doubt.



“Initial diagnosis of Baba Rahman’s injury shows a bruised meniscus. The Schalke man is returning to Gelsenkirchen for further examination,” the club’s official twitter account said.

Symptoms of a bruised meniscus are severe pain and swelling in the knee, buckling of the knee, a popping sensation when walking for long or running, and locking of the knee when attempting to straighten or fully extend the leg.
