The Ghana medical team led by Dr. Adam Baba revealed that the defender suffered "a rupture of the meniscus and a particular tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with fluid collection in the left knee."

Further tests will be carried out on the Ghana defender in London before decision is take on treatment.

The GFA will offer all the support to the dedicated and hardworking Baba Rahman on his road to recovery.
