Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah tweets promising update on his long-term injury recovery

Selhurst Park

The Ghanaian international is stepping up his rehab from a knee problem.

Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah would have been hoping for a breakthrough at the club this season.

The Ghanaian forward, who played at the African Cup of Nations earlier in the year, spent time on loan at Reading last season and scored plenty of goals during a loan spell at Cambridge United and was given a new deal by Palace for his efforts.

Unfortunately he has been unable to make the impact he would have wanted at Selhurst Park this term.

Appiah has been out of action since June after suffering a serious knee injury. The 24-year-old suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury whilst training with the Ghana national team that looked like ruling him out of action for the rest of the year.

So far that has been the case but he is seemingly on the road to recovery.

He sent this tweet earlier today, telling his followers that he was on his way back to action after turning a corner in his rehab:

Appiah is a talent that Palace clearly have some belief in with the contract they gave him last season.

If he can return from his injury issues in good time then he might just still have an impact at Palace this term.
