Raphael Dwamena Ruled Out Indefinitely Due To Heart Problem


Ghanaian striker Raphael Dwamena has been ruled out of action indefinitely due to a heart problem.

The 25-year-old old is expected to miss a lot of games while dealing with the problem which reportedly requires time to heal completely.

His club Real Zaragoza, in a statement, revealed Dwamena would undergo more tests and continued: “Real Zaragoza trust there will be a quick and total recovery.”

According to Marca, Dwamena had not finished well in recent games and for that reason this week he underwent several tests that have revealed a problem with his heart.

Dwamena’s case is more delicate, taking into account that in 2017 he was going to sign for English Brighton Hove & Albion, but he did not pass the medical check-up for some supposed heart problems.

However, he ended up at Spanish La Liga side Levante, where they did not detect any anomaly, as in Real Zaragoza so far.

Dwamena, who joined Real Zaragoza on loan last summer from Levante, has two goals in nine appearances this season.

He has been capped nine times by Black Stars and has scored two goals.
