GFA delegation visits injured Baba Rahman

A two-man delegation from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has visited injured Black Stars defender Baba Abdul-Rahman in Germany.

The delegation, led by the federation’s Vice-President George Afriyie, arrived in Gelsenkirchen on Saturday morning to check on the Schalke player’s injury recovery.

Rahman, who suffered a knee injury while playing for Ghana at the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, received the delegation at his home near Dusseldorf.

Afriyie, who was accompanied by fellow Emergency Committee member Kweku Eyiah, also conveyed best wishes from the Executive Committee of the GFA, Black Stars Management Committee and the entire football fraternity of Ghana.

The delegation expressed delight at the progress of Rahman who is recovering after undergoing surgery on the injury he suffered in the game against Uganda.

“We are happy to see that there’s been continued improvement since Baba had the surgery,” Afriyie told

“Where he is today, with regards to when he suffered the injury is huge. We have to thank everybody particularly the Schalke medical staff for their care.

“Baba was also grateful for the support he has had from the GFA and we assured him that we will continue to support him to get back on his feet stronger.”
