World Cup 2010: Sulley Muntari’s Thigh Injury Not Threatening – Specialist

The Inter player has been given more rest to heal quickly ahead of the main tournament…
London-based physiotherapists have given the Ghana camp assurances that midfielder Sulley Muntari will recover quickly from a thigh injury to take part in the 2010 World Cup.

A statement from the Ghana FA said the Inter player is undergoing a two-day physiotherapy treatment and will therefore be unavailable for the final friendly match against Latvia on Saturday in Milton Keynes. He will rejoin the team on Saturday evening.

Results of an MRI scan on Thursday on his left thigh revealed blood clots which would require a few days rest after treatment.

The statement read: "Sulley Muntari is seeing a physiotherapy specialist in London for treatment after the results of an MRI scan on his left thigh revealed blood clots. He's sat out of training since.”

"He will be under treatment for two days, thus today [Friday] and Saturday, and would return to the Black Stars camp on Saturday evening.

"The coach of the Black Stars and the FA were briefed by our doctor [Maj. (Dr) Annan] on the results of the tests and the treatment processes.

"We agreed for him to see the specialist upon the recommendation of our doctor and he will return to continue treatment with our medical personnel.

"The briefs from our team doctor suggest that after treatment, Sulley will require a few more days rest but we have been given assurances that the player will be World Cup bound," it added.
