Accra Hearts of Oak midfielder Gladson Awako went down injured before half time in the premier league 3-1 win against Dreams FC on Sunday afternoon, but the state of the injury is not as serious as observers may have thought, according to head coach Samuel Boadu.
Before his exit from the field, Awako was a masterclass in the midfield for Hearts of Oak, and was a nightmare to the Dreams FC midfielders, but could not last beyond half time when he went down on the turf and was stretched off for treatment. He could not return to play any further part in the game.
Hearts of Oak head coach Samuel Boadu was asked of the condition of the midfielder after the match, and his response was relieving as the former Accra Great Olympics man had no serious knock.
“I asked him [Awako after the match] and he wasn’t feeling well, he was [feeling] dizzy at that moment. It’s not that difficult, he is okay now”, Boadu told StarTimes after the match.
Accra Hearts of Oak will travel to the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park at Bechem to face the Hunters, Bechem United next weekend and Awako’s availability for the crucial game would be of great importance to coach Samuel Boadu.
