After more than a year on the sidelines due to injury, Joe Gyau may be ready to return to action.
On Monday, the 23-year-old American winger announced via his personal social media account he is free of pain. Gyau has not featured for Borussia Dortmund II or the senior side during the 2015-16 season due to a knee injury.
After bein in pain for so long with an injury, it's a blessing to finally be pain free…. My apologies to the defenders in advance 🙏🏾

Gyau was a Dortmund II standout, but has been hampered by injuries in recent years. The winger played in 11 games for the second team during the 2014-15 season, scoring twice. He also made one appearance for the senior team before suffering a knee injury.
In 2014, the 23-year-old earned his first and only two caps for the U.S. Men’s National Team in friendlies vs. Czech Republic and Ecuador. In the latter game, he started but had to be substituted off early into the match. It was later revealed that he had torn his lateral meniscus. Setbacks have forced his recovery to extend well into the current season, but Gyau could be ready to take on opponents once again.
What do you think of Gyau’s progress? When do you expect to see him playing?
