Sierra Leone native Mohamed Sankoh has returned to full action following 11 months out injured. The 18-year-old attacker was back in action for German Bundesliga side VfB’s Stuttgart as they thrashed SV Böblingen on Saturday.

Stuttgart walloped the host team 7-1 in their first pre-season friendly, and head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo was pleased. 

Sankoh, who extended his contract in November 2021 until 2026, suffered a knee injury in Stuttgart’s 5-1 triumph over Greuther Fürth in August 2021.

It was his first appearance for the 2021/2022 season but unfortunately happened to be his last for the season.

 “It was a successful first test in a great atmosphere with many spectators against an opponent who didn’t limit themselves to defending but played courageous football. 

“We only started training a week ago – of course, the details of the processes don’t yet fit in. What I liked was the willingness with which our players acted,” VfB head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo was quoted as saying.
