Former Brisbane Roar winger Kofi Danning has returned to the club for rehabilitation on his injured right knee as part of an agreement with club owners Pelita Jaya Cronus.

The 22-year-old, who spent the Hyundai A-League 2011/12 season with Brisbane, tore his anterior cruciate ligament five months ago while playing for the Roar-s sister club CS Vise in Belgium.

Following his knee reconstruction, Danning opted to do the rehabilitation closer to home and returned to Brisbane, where the Hyundai A-League club will look after his recovery.

“We believe this is the right thing to do for Kofi,” Managing Director Sean Dobson said.

“At this stage in his career, he needed support and we wanted to make him as comfortable as possible during the rehabilitation process.

“This is a familiar environment for him and he-s enjoying being back amongst the playing group here.

“We-re happy to have him back - he-s a very positive person even despite the challenges he-s currently facing.”

Danning will work closely with Brisbane Roar Head Physiotherapist Tim Oostenbroek during his recovery and a decision on his playing future will be made closer to the completion of his rehabilitation.
