Raphael Dwamena: Striker has medical chip implanted in chest after failed medical

FC Zurich and Ghana striker Raphael Dwamena has had a medical chip implanted in his chest to monitor his heart rate but has been declared fit to play again following his failed medical at English Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion.

Brighton had agreed a deal with Swiss club FC Zurich for the 22-year old’s transfer but pulled the plug on the move after the mandatory medicals discovered he had a heart condition.

Dwamena returned to his parent club Zurich where he had been undergoing further tests for the past 3 weeks.

The former Red Bull Salzburg striker has now been given the green light to start playing again and will return to training with Zurich on Monday.

The Black Stars striker who was excused from Ghana’s World Cup qualifiers earlier this month is thankful to be back playing again.

“God is good and he holds our future, he knows why he closed this transfer to Brighton. He is not done with me yet in Switzerland. Thank you for the prayers and love, can’t wait to get on the field again to represent him,” he told Kumasi-based Ultimate FM.

Raphael Dwamena has already scored 5 goals in the current campaign for Zurich.
