Ceesay went under the knife last month, it has emerged, a procedure led by professor Mariani on his left anterior cruciate ligament.
The Gambian fondly christened Zico, is reported to have picked up the injury in one of his matches for Kazakhstan premier league giants Kairat.
Ceesay –who spurred then Slovakian Champions MSK Zilina to the Uefa Champions League – last played for Kairat in a 1-0 defeat to Ordabasy in May in which he was subbed after 55 minutes.
The former U-17 goal-poacher as a result of the abrasion will remain on the peripheries for four to five months according to reports, while continuing his rehabilitation process including gym work-outs in Italy.Momodou has five goals in eleven matches this season.
His club Kairat meanwhile, continues to rival leaders Aktobe for the domestic league title and for a spot in the Uefa Champions League qualifiers. They are second-placed after twenty-two matches at forty-two points –a point below Aktobe in the standings.
Both sides now have to slug it out through a play-offs system after the end of the regular season and win top spot to lay any claims on the title.
