Ghana midfielder Rahim Ayew is expected to return to active play in three weeks, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
The 23-year-old has been out with a groin injury for about a month but has started individual training on his way to a full recovery.
A medical assessment of the SK Lierse enforcerâ€™s injury during the week revealed the 5-inches tear in his groin has healed by 3-inches.
He will continue to train on his own with daily gym works throughout next week before being introduced to kicking a ball.
Ayewâ€™s form was on a gradual leap before suffering the setback but he is very hopefully of making an even better comeback when finally cleared to play.
â€œI have been working twice everyday with the clubâ€™s medical team mainly in the gym and the signs are already looking very encouraging,â€ he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
â€œI am at this point fully concentrated on regaining my fitness but I am very much convinced my form will return when I am cleared to play.â€
