Asante Kotoko head coach Steve Polack has allayed the injury fears midfielder Mohammed Sylla in their victory over Techiman Eleven Wonders in the GHALCA G-8 opener on Sunday.
The Burkinabe attacking enforcer was the driving force behind the Porcupine Warriors 1-0 win over the newly promoted Ghana Premier League outfit at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
Sylla was deservedly adjudged the man-of-the-match despite a subdued display towards the end of the game after suffering a knock midway through the second half.
However, Coach Polack has downplayed the extent of the knock though he indicated the player will need to undergo further checks.
“It’s not a serious injury, but is just a precaution and he has to undergo a review next week so he wont be playing until probably the end of January,” Polack said in a post-match interview.
He is expected to return to the side's line-up when they face Dreams FC in the second round of fixtures on Wednesday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
