"Its’s frustrating but it’s part of the game," Ndah said.
"I have to embrace it. Sometimes you feel down, you don’t want to be on the sidelines injured. It’s different to when you’re training and not playing, [its worse] when you down injured and can’t what you enjoy doing. It’s really difficult.
"But I thank God for my family and the club. They have been supportive and helped me kept stay focused and I’m just grateful for that.
