Kumasi Asante Kotoko striker, Maxwell Baako, has started his rehabilitation process after he sustained an injury in February during their Confederation Cup campaign.

The attacker picked up a knock during Kotoko’s 3-2 loss to the Zambian side, Nkana FC, in the Confederation Cup game which sidelined the player for the rest of the competition.

However, speaking on Kumasi-based Kessben FC on Tuesday on the state of the player, CEO of Kotoko, George Amoako, said Baako was responding well to treatment and was hopeful he would be fit for next season's campaign.

According to him, Baako had begun walking without the aid of crutches which was a good sign the player was recovering speedily and should return to action soon.

“Maxwell Baako has started rehabilitation and is now walking without crutches so it's good news. We are hopeful that he will be fit before next season starts,” the Kotoko CEO said.

On the injury situation of Richard Senanu, Mr Amoako hinted that visa acquisition has delayed the travel plans to secure a top class treatment for the player but was convinced that he would still make the trip for treatment.

“Richard Senanu is waiting to travel for his surgery due to complications of his visa but, hopefully, he will travel."
