Esperance striker Emmanuel Clottey out for two weeks after weekend knock

The Ghana international picked a knock over the weekend, but after a scan report he has been assured all is well and needs to rest for a week or two
Esperance striker Emmanuel Clottey has been advised by doctors to stay off the pitch for a week or two following a slight knock over the weekend, Ghana understands.

A scan report on the player on Monday, assured the Tunisian champions Esperance du Tunis there is nothing to worry about, but it will be advisable to rest the Ghana international for a maximum of two weeks.

Clottey limped off in the league game against Bizertin at the Stade 15 Octobre in which Esperance won 1-0 and initial fears were that he had torn the ligaments in his knee.

“I’m fine and I’m happy it’s nothing serious. At least the initial fears are over and I’ll heed the medical team’s advise,” the 25-year-old told Ghana right after the scan.

The medical team of the Black and Gold has now resolved to rest the striker who netted 13 goals in this year’s Caf Champions League.
