Highly-rated Ghanaian winger Kamaldeen Sulemana has returned to training in a bid to make a strong finish to the French Ligue 1 season.

The 20-year-old Stade Rennais forward's return is a huge boost for Ghana as the Black Stars begin preparations ahead of next month's 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifies.

Kamaldeen Sulemana will miss the game against FC Nantes as confirmed by manager Bruno Genesio, but the winger is expected to be ready for Olympique Marseille on Saturday.

“Alfred Gomis is back. Kamaldeen Sulemana and Loïc Badé will be absent in Nantes but I have high hopes that they can apply against Marseille. Nayef Aguerd will be suspended," revealed Genesio as quoted by the official website of Stade Rennais.

The Ghana international picked up a back injury after the Africa Cup of Nations and has not featured for the club since February.

Sulemana has scored four goals in 20 games in the French Ligue one and he is considered one of the best dribblers in the league this season.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghana and Stade Rennais attacker Kamaldeen Sulemana has bemoaned his niggling injury which has hampered his season.

The 20-year-old speed merchant joined the Ligue 1 outfit last summer and had a bright start to life in France.

But his promising start has been truncated by an injury he sustained in February which ruled him out of Ghana's World Cup play-offs against Nigeria.
