Deportivo Alaves midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has undergone successful surgery on his injured right hand picked up over the weekend.

The Ghana midfielder injured his right hand while playing in his outfit's 4-2 loss to Osasuna, despite the injury he played the full 90 minutes. 

On Monday, a publication from his parent club in Spain revealed that 29-year-old Tamale-native has suffered an injury and will needing surgery.

"Wakaso Mubarak suffered a fracture in the metacarpus of his right hand as reported by IMQ, official insurer of the Baskonia Alaves Group," Alaves have published on their official website.

"The Ghanaian player will undergo a microsurgery tomorrow and is expected to return to training during this week.

"The club will be informed about his progress on a daily basis."

The good news for the fans of the midfielder is, the player has had a successful surgery earlier today at a hospital in Spain and is expected to start training in the coming days.

Wakaso has been a key part of Alaves' set-up this season, having featured in all but one of their 12 league games played so far. He started in all those games.

Wakaso is likely to miss Ghana's 2019 Africa Cup of Nations doubleheader against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe on November 14 and 17 respectively.
 
He was among the 23-man squad invited for the all-important clash this month by Coach Kwesi Appiah.
