Ghana Black Stars and Schalke 04 defender, Abdul Baba Rahman has been ruled out for the rest of the season following a successful surgery on an injury he suffered at the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
The 22-year-old defender picked up an injury in Ghana’s first AFCON game against Uganda.
Rahman tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and damaged the inner and outer meniscus.
He was thus flown to London for initial examinations and then on to Germany for an operation.
Black Stars' coach Avram Grant blamed the poor surface at Port-Gentil for the injury.
Rahman will begin rehabilitation with Chelsea in the coming days.
He is on loan at Schalke 04 from Chelsea and cost the London club £21.7m.
