Ghanaian defender Kevin Danso takes sick leave to force RC Lens move

Published on: 21 July 2021

Augsburg defender Kevin Danso has taken a sick leave in order to force a transfer to French side RC Lens according to reports.

Danso spent the previous season on loan to Fortuna Dussledorf, and with this season developing to be the same end, Danso has reportedly taken matters into his own hands by taking a sick leave.

This act is similar to some acts of the past to force transfers out of clubs. In 2006, William Gallas reportedly threatened Chelsea that he will score an own goal if he is not allowed to leave.

Ousmane Dembele also shirked training at Dortmund to force a move to Barcelona in 2017.

Kevin Danso's situation is expected to develop in the coming days.
