Top Myanmar football striker Kyaw Ko Ko flew to Thailand on Tuesday for treatment of his thigh injury.
The 20-year old national squad member, who was adjudged the best football player of Myanmar in 2011, sustained thigh injury during Asian U-22 qualifier against South Korean in June.
The Myanmar Football Federation (MFF) is sponsoring his medial trip.
Kyaw Ko Ko did not play any match for nearly three months. The injury also threw him out of all remaining matches of Zeyashwemye in Myanmar National League.
He was called back to the national squad as a substitute during Myanmar’s Japan tour last September. As his injury worsened further, the MFF decided to send him to Thailand for treatment of his thigh injury.
Kyaw Ko Ko scored five goals in the 2011 Southeast Asian Games, helping Myanmar U-23 team secure the third place.
The MFF announced him as the best football player of Myanmar on December 15 last year.
In January this year, rumors spread that German football club 1. FC Nuremberg would call him for trial.
