Richard Senanu's hope of going for treatment in Germany has been dented a big blow as the German embassy denies him visa.
Senanu was to undergo an ACL reconstruction and post-surgery rehabilitation at a medical facility in Rostock.
But the Germany embassy has raised doubt over the player's return to Ghana should he be granted the visa, a claim Kotoko has rejected.
"Its true the German Embassy has refused Senanu visa to aid him go under the knife which management is surprised at," Deputy Communication Director Nana Kwame Dankwah on Oyerepa 100.7FM"
"We provided every evidence to that effect to the extent of purchasing his ticket which he should had left Ghana on the 22nd of June.
"We will appeal to the embassy so he gets the entry visa because the hospital in Germany is also intervening since we have paid for all expenses for the trip including our medical rep that will be going with him as well as where he will be going for rehabilitation so its never true we didn't do enough."
The central midfielder has for the past four months been missing in action following an injury he sustained during the club's CAF Confederations Cup game against Zesco United in Accra.
Initial reports suggested the former Phar Rangers player will be travelling to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates for the surgery but the Dubai trip was cancelled by the new medical team who advised for a Germany alternative.
Diagnosis showed Senanu had suffered two ligament tears at the front and outer sides of the right knee, which call for a corrective surgery.
Until his injury, the you youngster had been a constant feature in Kotoko's starting line-up since joining the club.
