At the same time, Timbe who plays for Beijing Renhe of China is hopeful his injury will not hinder his game and hopes to be fit and running again after six weeks.

“I have gone through the surgery and I hope to be back better after like six weeks, I just need to be patient and  do the right thing and I will play again even for my country,’ the speedy winger told Citizen Digital in an online interview from his base in China.

Timbe linked up with the Chinese club from Belgian outfit Genk FC and has so far scored 7 goals for the former.

The 26-year-old also hopes to be back to the national team Harambee Stars under coach Sébastien Migné after missing a number of matches due to suspension from CAF and niggling injuries.
