Ghana’s Gershon Koffie recovering steadily – New England Revolution coach

Head coach of Major League soccer (MLS) side New England Revolution, Jay Heaps says Ghanaian midfielder Gershon Koffie is gradually recovering and will resume full action soon.

Koffie suffered a right knee sprain against FC Dallas on May 21 and missed the Revolution’s win over Seattle Sounders FC on May 28.

Koffie has remained pivotal for the Revs this year, missing just one other game through suspension. The break therefore comes at a particularly good time for Gershon who is hoping to bounce back soon.

Coach Heaps believes the Ghanaian defensive midfielder has benefitted from the short MLS break during the group stage of Copa America Centenario to recuperate and will take that next step in his recovery early next week, before the Revs head to North Carolina to begin their U.S. Open Cup campaign against the Carolina RailHawks on Wednesday night.

“Gershon’s such a tough kid. He’d like to be out there now, but we’re being smart with him. He’s itching to get back out there, but I think next week we’ll start to see a little bit more.

“With [this week] being a short week for us and giving the guys another weekend off, we’re going to keep Gershon out until early next week and see where he is”, Heaps told the official website of the Revs.
