Ghanaian international defender Joseph Aidoo, RC Celta de Vigo player, faces a recovery period that will last at least six months, after undergoing surgery to repair his Achilles tendon, which he suffered a tear during a match with the Ghana team.
Celta issued a statement in which it reported that the surgical intervention, carried out by the head of the club’s medical services, Juan José García Cota, passed without complications. During the operation, reconstruction of the tendon was performed using reinforced sutures, and growth factors were applied to promote effective recovery.
A very hard blow for the celestials
The light blue center-back was injured during a friendly in which Ghana faced Mexico. This injury represents a hard blow for both the player and the team since Aidoo will be a significant loss for Celta for the remainder of the season, an added problem for Rafa Benítez, who sees one of his pillars broken in a quite delicate situation since he is unable to channel the team’s rhythm. In addition, he will miss the next edition of the African Cup of Nations, a tournament of great importance for his country.
Recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon is a long and challenging process, requiring dedication and effort from the player. Joseph Aidoo will have to undergo a rigorous rehabilitation program to return to peak physical fitness and resume his career in professional football.
