Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Isaac Amoako has advised the football administrators and the team management on how to positively treat an injured players.
Sometimes it is very difficult for some players to bravely come out with the truth of how deliberately they treat them when they are injured.
This is the bad side of one’s career which can lead to early retirement.
According to the ex-Ashgold goalkeeper he was negatively treated at a point he was expecting the management of the Obuasi based club to take a proper care of him but could not offer him that and let him left the club to join Asante Kotoko which is very bad.
“How I was treated at Ashantigold aftermath a knee injury closer to the end of my days there wasn’t good. I told the management to take proper care of my injured leg but they refused. There was change of CEO at that time so it was like the care wasn’t there and I told them if they can’t take good care of me then they should let me to go home for better treatment. I went and spent one week in the house and a call came urgently from our administrator for me to report at Obuasi. They terminated my contract at the time I returned from home to the camp after three seasons. I said wow! So how can you release such an injury player without a good care to leave the club and it affected me a lot but all the same I have to accept it.
“I encountered the same thing at Kotoko which led to my move from there.”
“To be honest with you, that attitude of some management or the administrators of some clubs should stop. It is not good for you to work with a player that way mostly when they are injured.
“When the person is depressed and always thinking about it can have an effect on the club.”
He told Nimde3 FM.
Goalkeeper Isaac Amoako was part of Ghana’s team led by Mariano Barreto for the 2004 Olympic games qualifiers.
