This means he’ll miss the club’s away trip in the CAF Champions League preliminary round clash against Mauritanian side, FC Nouadhibou, on November 27, 2020.
Further reports suggest he might be back earlier than the stipulated four to five weeks, per information obtained from the Doctors who assessed the Black Stars goalkeeper.
