BABA RAHMAN MAY BE COMPENSATED BY THE GHANA FA

Published

on

Injured Black Stars defender Baba Rahman could be offered a compensation package by the Ghana FA, according to president Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Rahman is set to be sidelined for the next seven months after picking up a serious knee injury in Ghana’s opening Group D clash against Uganda last week.

The left-back has since had a successful surgery on his left knee, but the recovery time means his 2016/17 season is over.

He has been recalled from his loan spell at German side Schalke and will undertake his recovery in London with parent club Chelsea.

Nyantakyi told Graphic Sports that the Ghana FA may pay compensation for earnings he will miss out on at club level due to the injury he sustained while playing for the Black Stars.

“Baba Rahman’s injury is an example of injuries that could end his career. I’m told he would be out for about seven months,” said the GFA boss.

“And in most clubs if you don’t play beyond two months or three months, you would be put on half salary. Or in some cases they would put you out of salary if you don’t have an insurance to underwrite the salaries for you.

“The FA provided some compensation, about $5,000, to Otto Addo when he was injured while playing for Ghana. Ben Kuofie, who was FA chairman, then also visited him to show concern. Although the money was a token, the gesture was good.

“We did same for similar thing for Jerry Akaminko ,who sustained a career-threatening injury in the run up to the 2014 World Cup and we’re not opposed to a similar thing for Baba Rahman.”

At the opening of the 13th day of the Premier League, West Ham United (18th) receives Friday Leicester City (12th). The Hammers, poorly in point in the league, can count on the return of the Ghanaian Andre Ayew.

Ghanaian international Andre Ayew is now available after a brief stoppage due to illness. That’s what West Ham United manager David Moyes said before the game against Leicester City. Moyes, who was recently named head of the Hammers, said Ayew missed the match last weekend against Watford due to illness.

« Andre Ayew was sick, » Moyes told reporters on Thursday.

« It was not so bad but it took a few days to find its mark, » continued the former Manchester United manager.

« He’s back among us, which is good, » added Moyes.

Ayew, 27, has played 10 league games for the Hammers this season. The midfielder will seek to inspire West Ham to victory, which would allow the London-based team to leave the relegation zone.
