Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has undergone a successful surgery and will be out of football action for 45 days.
The player ruptured the meniscus cartilage in the game against Palermo and was hauled off as the Italian champions won by a goal to nil.
An update on Kwadwo Asamoah’s injury read on Juventus’ official website on Monday:
“Kwadwo Asamoah today underwent successful meniscectomy surgery on his right knee. The operation was conducted by Professor Cugat in Barcelona in the presence of Juventus club doctor Claudio Rigo.
“The midfielder will begin his rehabilitation programme immediately and the timeframe for his return to action remains the same as originally estimated, namely around 45 days.”
Kwadwo Asamoah dealt with a host of injuries at Juventus last season and had a limited playing time.
The player however returned strongly for the Serie A champions putting in superb performances for Juventus in the games he played in.
Asamoah will also look to get fit for international duty as the FIFA World Cup qualifiers and the 2017 African Cup of Nations are coming up for the Black Stars.
