His outstanding performances earned him a place in Ghana's World Cup squad in Qatar last year, playing all three games in the group.

The latest set back means Kyereh is out of next month's Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Angola.

The club wrote:

Kofi Kyereh tore his cruciate ligament in training and will be out for the rest of the season.
In Thursday's training, Kofi Kyereh twisted his knee in a duel. An examination in the Freiburg University Hospital resulted in the diagnosis of a cruciate ligament rupture. An operation is to follow in the next few days. The attacking player will no longer be available this season.
We wish Kofi a successful surgery and a speedy recovery!

In photos posted on the player's Instagram page, Daniel Kofi-Kyereh is a drip lord, as he stuns in glamorous photos.
