Augsburg end Opare ban
Ghana international defender Daniel Opare has returned to training with Augsburg after the German club ended the player’s suspension from the first team.
Opare, 25, had been banned after turning up late for training.
Augsburg sporting director Stefan Reuter told the club’s website: “Everybody deserves a second chance. He made a mistake, which he has realised.
“He has apologised to his team-mates and as far as we are concerned, the case has been solved.”
Ausburg coach Markus Weinzierl said: “He’s a young player who has made a mistake and recognised it. He’s apologised.”
Opare trained with the team on Tuesday for the first time since he was punished for arriving late to the final training session before his club faced Darmstadt on 12 March – a fixture where the defender was hoping to make his Bundesliga debut since joining from FC Porto in August.
During his suspension Opare was forced to train alone.
The Ghanaian apologised for what he described as a “mistake – because I did not hear my alarm”.
