Mathare United midfielder Ahmed Ahmad is set to sit out for six weeks to fully recover from a knee surgery after he was operated on this week.
Ahmed was promoted to the senior squad last January after impressing in Kenyan Premier League U-20 tournament last December but his steady rise to form was cut short by a knee injury he picked in the first leg. He suffered a second degree meniscus tear according to Mathare United Team, Doctor Wycliffe Omom, who was quoted on the club’s official website.
“Ahmed underwent the latest ‘anthroscopy’ (arthroscopic) surgery which was very successful. He is likely to be out for six weeks after which he will resume light training."
Ahmed now joins long term absentee list that include Roy Syamba and Alphonce Ndonye still on the treatment table.
