Kwesi faces spell on the sidelines after training ground injury

An update from Stuart Douglas on Wimbledon's number nine

4 December 2019

Kwesi Appiah has suffered ankle ligament damage that could keep him out of action for up to eight weeks.

Wimbledon’s number nine suffered an injury on the training ground and Stuart Douglas is now working with Kwesi on his recuperation.

Our physio said: “Kwesi injured his ankle in training. He went to head a ball and landed awkwardly, rolling his ankle, which is very common in football. He has damaged the outside of his ankle, which is the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL). This is very common and it gets injured a lot. Kwesi has also injured his deltoid ligament on the inside of the ankle. We are looking at 6-8 weeks, so he will be out for a while. He is currently in a cast boot and is using crutches. I will see him again on Thursday, just to see where he is at, and then we will devise a plan to go forward from there.”

Kwesi has scored three goals for Wimbledon this season, including that vital last-gasp equaliser against Lincoln City. All at AFC Wimbledon wish Kwesi well in his recuperation.

Look out later this afternoon for the return of ‘From the Physio Room’ with a full update from Stuart Douglas.
