Asante Kotoko SC have been boosted from the treatment table with the timely return of crocked defender Ismail Abdul Ganiu.
The hugely talented center back spent seven months away from the pitch thanks to a knee injury that saw him spending 212 days on the treatment table.
Ismail Abdul Ganiu last featured for Asante Kotoko SC on June 23, 2019 against Karela United FC but ended his lengthy spell away from the pitch with a return for the Porcupine in their 4-1 thrashing of lower tier side in a friendly.
His timely return to fitness will certainly boost the defensive option for Maxwell Konadu as they seek to rectify their generous back line.
The returning defender will certainly miss the trip to Accra for the Classico with Hearts of Oak SC but could return to competitive action before match day 8 in the ongoing National Championship.
