Hearts of Oak Board member – Alhaji Akambi has confirmed that crocked midfielder, Daniel Kordie could be out of action for six months.

The midfielder had a successful knee surgery at the Netcare Linksfield Hospital in South Africa last Friday having endured the injury for over two years.

“I am grateful to Hearts and especially to the Board Chairman,” the player said after the surgery.

“I really appreciate his support because without that my career would have ended abruptly.

“I will forever be grateful to him and promise to remain loyal to this club. This is the greatest thing that has happened to my career”.

“ I also thank the medical team here and I will be committed to the rehabilitation instructions that will be required to complete the healing process.

“Am optimistic to get back to the team to contribute my quota to the success of the club.”

According to Alhaji Akambi, however, even though the player had a successful surgery it’ll take him six months or more before he will return to action.

“We are done with the operation, but the doctor will run one or two test on him again,” said Akambi.

“This kind of injury takes time to heal. In my primary discussion with the doctor I gathered that Kordie could be out for six weeks, but we still have to wait for the final confirmation from the doctor,” he added.

Daniel Kordie got injured in an MTN/FA Cup competition involving Hearts of Oak and Uncle T United at the Accra Sports Stadium in May 2019.

Alhaji Akambi and Daniel Kordie will be in Ghana by next week.
