Kenya international Brian Mandela Onyango underwent surgery on his right knee on Wednesday in France.
This follows an injury he sustained in training in the run-up to Kenya’s departure to Egypt for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.
Onyango had a Meniscus tear and was consequently ruled out of the tournament as coach Sébastien Migné named his 23-man final squad.
Football Kenya Federation has since taken up his injury costs.
Onyango will then jet into Cairo on Thursday and will be with the team as they look to make history in the continent’s top tier national competition according to the Football Kenya Federation.
The defender is currently on the books of South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Maritzburg United.
Meanwhile, the Harambee Stars touched base in Egypt on Tuesday, June 18, 2019, ahead of their first match against Algeria on Sunday.
The team is set to hold its first training session on Wednesday evening.
