Abdul Baba Rahman, the Ghanaian defender for Greek club PAOK, has provided a positive update on his health after colliding with an opponent and losing consciousness during a match on Wednesday.

The frightening incident occurred in extra time of PAOK’s Greek Cup match against Panathinaikos.

Baba Rahman and an opposing player jumped for a header and their heads clashed, causing the left-back to fall to the ground unconscious.

Medical staff immediately rushed to his aid and attended to him on the pitch for several minutes.

He was then taken to a nearby hospital for clinical assessments and scans.

In a social media post on Thursday, February 22, Baba Rahman thanked supporters for their well-wishes and said he is now recovering well from the ordeal.

“Hello, just wanted to thank everyone for their concern and well wishes in the last 12 or so hours. Thankfully I’m recovering well and scans have shown no major damage,” he wrote on X.

The defender also expressed gratitude to a PAOK player who checked on his condition at the hospital.

“I’d like to also say a big thank you to Georgios Vagiannidis for personally checking in on me at the hospital,” Rahman stated.

Despite the frightening scenes on Wednesday, Rahman is optimistic about his recovery and return to action.

“It was a tough night but I’d be back running up and down again soon,” he assured fans.
