Ghana international, Kamaldeen Sulemana has admitted to facing a difficult time while being on the sidelines for months due to a back injury.

The highly-rated youngster has not played since being involved in the last 10 minutes of Stade Rennais’ 1-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain back in February, ruling him out of Ghana’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier playoff against Nigeria.

Having suffered the injury, his club were hopeful of recovering the 20-year-old in two weeks’ time but the winger has had to face further setbacks in his recovery period extending his time on the sidelines.

The former Nordsjaelland whiz kid has admitted his injury period has been a difficult one to take considering his blistering start to life in France after joining Rennais last summer.

It’s difficult. There are up and downs. I’m happy when the team plays well and has results but it’s difficult not to take part and just watch games in front of the TV or just sitting in the stadium,” Kamaldeen told the club’s website.

“I’d like to be on the pitch and in the locker room doing what I know how to do and what I like to do. I cannot be satisfied. This is the first time I’ve been stopped for so long in my professional career.
“I didn’t have a problem when I was in Denmark. This injury has lasted longer than expected. It’s a bit of a rollercoaster.

“At the start of the injury, after two weeks, I felt good. I thought I could be back soon. You start running again, you come back to the field, and there you feel the pain. Then you work hard again, you do whatever it takes to come back and the pains come back again,” he added.

The forward has been directly involved in seven goals in 27 appearances in all competitions for Bruno Genesio’s men.
