Ghana’s Gideon Baah undergoes successful surgery, misses rest of MLS season

Major League Soccer (MLS) side New York Red Bulls have confirmed that their Ghanaian center back Gideon Baah had a successful surgery on Monday evening to repair a fractured left tibia.

The surgery was performed by Red Bulls team physician Dr. Riley Williams at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Baah’s maiden MLS season came to a crushing end as he left Sunday’s game against the Portland Timbers with injury in the 22nd minute.

The New York Red Bulls have confirmed that the Ghanaian defender will miss the rest of the 2016 MLS season.

Baah was signed by the Red Bulls ahead of the 2016 season when he joined the red side of New York from HJK Helsinki in the Finnish league but series of injuries have hampered his progress in the league.

He made nine MLS appearances this season, including six starts, and scored two goals.

“To have this happen to him is painful for everyone,” head coach Jesse Marsch summed up the disappointment of the club.
