Ghana defender Vorsah's return for World Cup thrown into serious doubt

Published on: 30 January 2014

Ghana's hopes of playing key defender Isaac Vorsah in the World Cup in June has been thrown into serious doubt after his Austrian club Red Bull Salzburg revealed he will not be available for selection in the ‘foreseeable future’.

The 25-year-old was expected to return to the pitch after he recovered from a six-month long injury lay-off.

But the Austrian giants are seeking to sign a replacement for the centre-back before the transfer window shuts because of uncertainty over Vorsah return to action since suffering a serious knee injury.

Vorsah was made to travel with the team to their winter pre-season in Qatar which sparked hopes that he could be fit for the World Cup

However the club’s sporting director Ralf Rangnick has revealed the Ghanaian international is not expected to the pitch anytime soon.

“Isaac Vorsah will not be available to us in the foreseeable future and on Rodnei we have to wait. During the next two to three days we will make a decision,” Rangnick is quoted by

The Austrian powerhouse are already in the market scouring for Vorsah’s replacement as his recovery has delayed.

The former TSG Hoffenheim defender is desperate to be full fit ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in June.

    Oh my God please help him. How I wish John Mensah could get a club ASAP. Can't John Mensah try to get a club in South Africa or the Arab nations or something? Even Kpando Stars will even do.

    try to get a contract with a lower division team. If we manage to get to the finals in the wc, you will be in a great position to get a better contract. All we need is for you to get playing time so u can get back to ur form. Good luck bro
