Mohammed Salisu: Ghana Handed Huge Boost as AS Monaco Defender Begins First Team Training
- Mohammed Salisu has started group training at AS Monaco
- The Ghana international has been out with an injury since March
- Salisu joined the French outfit in the summer transfer window
Ghana defender, Mohammed Salisu is nearing an injury comeback after joining AS Monaco's first-team training this week.
The 24-year-old centre-back is yet to make an appearance for the Ligue 1 giants since joining the club in the summer transfer window from Southampton.
Salisu's debut for the French outfit was delayed after suffering pubalgia (groin) injury, which forced him to undergo surgery to correct the problem.
However, in photos posted on social media, the towering centre-back is seen training with his teammates ahead of the game against Brest on Sunday.
Salisu's return to practice is a huge boost for Ghana's Black Stars with the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers set to begin this November.
The former Southampton and Real Valladolid player has not played competitive football since March after featuring in the 3-3 draw against Tottenham in the English Premier League.
Meanwhile, Monaco coach Addi Hutter is expected to ease him into the squad as he begins his career in France, as reported by Get Football News France.
Salisu was one of Ghana's best players at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
