Kamaldeen Sulemana, a winger for Stade Rennes and the Black Stars, has spoken out about his lengthy injury absence, stating that it has been “very difficult” and “longer than he expected.”
The 20-year-old has been out of action since the beginning of this year after suffering an injury in February that forced him to miss Ghana’s crucial World Cup qualifiers playoff against Nigeria in March.
He signed with the Red and Blacks prior to the start of the current season and quickly established himself as a fan favorite and a mainstay at Roazhon Park, where he remained until his recent lengthy injury layoff ended his season.
The former Right to Dream star, on the other hand, is nearing the end of his rehabilitation and is expected to return to action very soon before the campaign’s conclusion.
Speaking to the club’s website, the former Nordsjaelland winger admitted that it has been difficult for him, and that this is the longest injury he has suffered in his career so far. He expressed his hope to return to action as soon as possible. He stated that;
“It’s a difficult situation. There are ups and downs to the journey. Even though I’m pleased when the team performs well and achieves success, it’s difficult not to participate and instead just sit back and watch games on television or in the stadium.”
“I’d like to be out on the field and in the locker room doing what I’m good at and what I enjoy doing.” I am unable to be satisfied. “This is the first time in my professional career that I have been stopped for such a long period of time.”
In Denmark, I didn’t have any problems whatsoever. This injury has been bothering me for much longer than I anticipated. A rollercoaster ride, to put it mildly.”
“At the beginning of the injury, after two weeks, I was feeling fine. I had hoped to be back in a short period of time. You begin to run again, returning to the field, where you begin to feel the discomfort. Then you put in the effort again, you do whatever it takes to get back on track, and the pain returns.” He came to an end.
Kamaldeen Sulemana has scored four goals and provided two assists in 20 appearances for Stade Rennes, and it is highly likely that he will do so again in the AFCON 2023 qualifying matches.
