Fiorentina AFCON winner Christian Kouamé suffers from malaria

Big blow for Christian Kouamé. Recent winner of the African Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast, the 26-year-old striker is not expected to return to the pitch any time soon.

As indicated by his club Fiorentina, the Ivory Coast international contracted malaria, an infectious disease transmitted by the bite of a mosquito.

“On the night of February 20 to 21, Christian Kouamé had a fever and felt unwell. The tests carried out revealed that he had contracted malaria. He has received the necessary care and he will undergo further examinations in the coming days,” said the Viola without indicating any length of unavailability for his player, who appeared 21 times for 1 goal and 1 assist in all competitions this season.
