Raphael Dwamena career has suffered another major setback after his Danish Superligaen side Vejle Boldklub terminated his contract due to a recent heart problem.
The Danish club, Vejle BK, announced the development following a complication regarding the 25-year-old’s health.
Dwamena joined Vejle BK earlier this year with an ICD-Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator implanted in his heart, due to an existing heart condition.
According to a statement released by the Danish club, this has been continuously monitored by Vejle Boldklub’s health staff and medical on the training ground and during the club’s matches.
However, there has now been a single case where Raphael Dwamena’s limit values when monitoring his heart have been too high, and this unfortunately also means that Vejle Boldklub must now take Dwamena off the field.
Technical manager at Vejle Boldklub, Jacob Krüger, explained the club’s decision.
“That there has now been one case where the limit values have been too high, we must, based on a health professional assessment as a club, take the consequence of. Raphael is therefore taken off the field.
We are, of course, sorry on Raphael’s behalf, but the parties have been aware from the outset of the consequence that would have been the case if Raphael’s monitoring had exceeded the limit values in the measurement.
Raphael Dwamena has in her short time in Vejle Boldklub shown a great human format, a professional approach to her profession and a desire to learn from her towards our young players. We will now help Raphael in the new situation.”
Dwamena scored two goals in five matches.
Danish SuperLiga Champions Vejle Boldklub this summer announced the signing of Ghanaian forward Raphael Dwamena from Spanish top-flight outfit UD Levante after the striker who was out for several months due to heart problems recovered.
