The former St Pauli star is in the rehabilitation stages of his recovery as he works his way back to action.

However, in a photo shared on social media, Kyereh and his friends were spotted having a good time in Germany alongside the Real Madrid star.

Rudiger and Kyereh grew up together in Germany, where they both started their football careers.

The former Chelsea defender played for Stuttgart before leaving Germany to join Italian outfit AS Roma. He helped Chelsea win the 2021 UEFA Champions League before moving to Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Kyereh was rather a late bloomer as he finally got his breakthrough at the age of 26 following his move to Freiburg in the Bundesliga, as reported by SC Freiburg.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that players of Freiburg walked onto the pitch before their Bundesliga game against VfB Stuttgart wearing shirts bearing the name and jersey number of Daniel-Kofi Kyereh.

The Ghana international had been ruled out for the rest of the season after tearing his cruciate ligament during training.

In a show of support for the midfielder, the team warmed up in t-shirts showing the name of Kyereh.

Kyereh reveals mother's career influence

Multi-talented Ghanaian footballer, Daniel-Kofi Kyereh has revealed that his mother gave him the option of choosing to become a footballer or an athlete.

Kyereh, who was good at various sports, ended up choosing football, a decision that has paid off as he represented Ghana at the World Cup in Qatar.

Born in Ghana, Kyereh moved to Germany at a tender age, where he started playing football and other sports, including basketball.
