The former Kariobangi Sharks marksman, Masoud Juma is progressing in his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury after surgery.

Harambee Stars forward Masoud Juma has shared a positive update on his injury after he underwent ankle surgery.

The talented striker, who plays for Saudi Arabian Division One side Al Jabalain, has been navigating a challenging path to recovery following a severe achilles tendon injury he sustained at the end of January.

The unfortunate incident occurred while representing his club, leading to weeks on the sidelines and necessitating surgery.

"It's a special day for me as I walk again 60 days after my surgery. The journey has now begun. It's a tough one, but I am sure I will be up to it. Thank you all for prayers and support. I am humble[d]," Juma shared on Instagram.

The injury led to Juma missing out on the four-nations tournament held in Malawi, where Kenya emerged victorious last month.

His absence was felt, especially considering his impressive track record of scoring in his last three outings for the Harambee Stars against notable teams such as Russia, Gabon, and Seychelles.

At 27, Masoud Juma has had an illustrious football career, both internationally and within the FKF Premier League.

He has turned out for several clubs in Kenya, including Shabana, Sony Sugar, and Bandari.

However, it was during his time with Kariobangi Sharks in the 2017 season that he truly made his mark, finishing as the league's top scorer with 24 goals.

Juma's journey in Arabian football is notable, with stints at Libyan side Al-Nasr Benghazi and Algerian heavyweights JS Kabylie.

He made his senior international debut for Kenya in June 2017 against Sierra Leone in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match and was part of the national team at AFCON 2019.

Before his move to the Arabian Peninsula, Juma also had a stint in South Africa with Cape Town City, where he worked under the tutelage of current Manchester United first-team coach Benni McCarthy.
