Asante Kotoko SC inspirational centre back Ismail Abdul Ganiu is set to avoid the much anticipated surgery after stepping up his personal training ahead of the 2020 Ghana Premier league campaign.
The 23 year old center back starred for the Porcupine Warriors during the 2018/19 CAF Confederation cup and the NC Special competition before picking up an injury in the build up to the 2019/20 CAF Champions league season.
Management of the Baba Yara based outfit rolled out plans to airlift their prized asset to Germany for surgery on the knee that is set to truncate the playing career of the former Wa All Stars FC center back.
Series of personal treatment from experts here in Ghana however seems to have freed the lanky center back from the misery of the surgical knife.
A viral video posted on the personal tweeter feed suggested he is physically fit and drawing ever closer to the pitch with sources quoting December as his return date to the pitch.
His return to the pitch will boost the defensive frailties of Asante Kotoko SC after a woeful continental season that culminated in the externally induced exiled slapped on their head coach, Kjetil Zachariossen.
