DOHA: Moroccan international footballer Marouane Chamakh is currently undergoing intensive treatment at Aspetar Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Hospital, following an injury sustained a fortnight ago while playing for English club Crystal Palace during a Premier League match.

Former Arsenal striker Chamakh chose Aspetar for his treatment hopes to make a quick return to the field and join his Palace teammates who are fighting hard to stay in the English Premier League. The centre forward has proven to be an exceptionally popular signing, having joined ‘The Eagles’ at the start of the season, and his strong form has been instrumental in Crystal Palace’s valiant attempts to climb out of the Premier League’s relegation zone.

Chamakh said: “Aspetar has a great reputation internationally, and many friends I have in football recommended that I should come here. I chose the hospital as it has tremendous capabilities and exclusive expertise in sports medicine.

I feel comfortable about the treatment plan and am hoping to make a quick return to the field.” Dr Hakim Chalabi, acting chief medical officer at Aspetar and the Executive Director of the National Sports Medicine Programme, commented: “We consistently strive to provide the best care and support for athletes in order for them to reach their full potential. Marouane Chamakh is a distinguished player and we will do our utmost to help him return to the football field soon.” Chamakh suffered a thigh injury in the recent 1-1 draw between Crystal Palace and Swanse.
