There have been high hopes in Asante Kotoko camp as midfielder Richard Senanu returns to training. He has had his career dogged by serious fitness problems.
Senanu has not played for the club since February 2019 after damaging his cruciate knee ligaments in Asante Kotoko’s 2-1 win against Zesco United in Kumasi in the CAF Confederation Cup.
The 26-year-old was expected to make his long-awaited return to competitive football before the start of the current football season after returning to the club’s training in July but suffered a new setback in his rehabilitation in October 7.
However, the defensive midfielder who has long been regarded as one of the most exciting talents to join the Porcupines in recent times joined his teammates in training on Tuesday, December 30, 2020, under the supervision of Coach Johnson Smith and assistant, Abdulai Gazale.
It is a huge step in the recovery process for Richard Senanu who has suffered several setbacks on his way back to the pitch. It has not been reported when we can expect him to play for Kotoko, and it will certainly take him some time to regain optimal physical conditions.
But, the former Phar Rangers midfielder will be registered to be part of Asante Kotoko’s 2020/21 season’s campaign in the next transfer window which is expected to be opened by the Ghana Football Association in February.
