Injury rules Amoo out for 10 months



Following a serious injury, Danish club Copenhagen have confirmed that Nigeria international Akinkunmi Amoo has been ruled out of action for another nine to 10 months.

The youngster picked up the serious injury during Copenhagen’s training match ahead of their weekend fixtures against Silkeborg.

The player underwent further test on Tuesday with the result showing that the 21-year-old won’t be able to take on to the pitch for another 9 to 10 months as stated by the club.

“Akinkunmi Amoo, unfortunately, suffered a serious knee injury in Saturday’s training match against Silkeborg, and after scans and examinations, he has unfortunately been ruled out for the rest of the season.

“Amoo now has an operation, then rest, and then a long rehabilitation before he can train with the team and play matches again. Altogether, that process will last 9-10 months,’ says chief physician at FCK, Morten Boesen.

“Everyone at FCK wishes Amoo a speedy recovery,” a club statement said.

He’s billed to undergo surgery and continue his rehabilitation.

The injury means Amoo will miss an opportunity to play in the UEFA Champions League this season.

He joined Copenhagen in January from Hammarby and has had a rather measured impact since teaming up with the Danes.

Amoo was called up for Nigeria’s games against Ghana but didn’t get to feature and will have to wait for another year to play for the national team again.
