(Addis Ababa, Ethiopioa) – St. George and the Ethiopian National Football team’s defender, Salahadin Bergecho, has returned home after conducting a successful medical treatment in Germany. Salahadin sustain a serious knee injury during a CECAFA match between Ethiopia and Burundi some weeks ago.
“During the injury, I felt a very painful feeling but I tried to continue and finish that game,” Salahadin told St. George’s Lisane Giorgis paper. “So, I was forced to withdraw from the game later on.”
The star player said the medical attention he received in Ethiopia couldn’t improve his condition so he travelled to Germany and has successfully recovered well after a one week stay in Europe. He said he hopes to return to the game after attending a few more medical sessions with local doctors.
“I have a received a video- assisted medical treatment in Germany. I know that knee surgery is dangerous for players and I was alarmed by it at first. But now I’m feeling good. I hope to return back to the pitch very soon,” he said.
