Maxwell Baakoh has finally cleared up the uncertainty surrounding his surgery during his time with Asante Kotoko.
Media reports suggest that the midfielder was taken to Germany and South Africa in 2019 for knee surgery following an injury he sustained during a CAF Confederation Cup game against Nkana FC in Zambia where the Porcupines were defeated 3-2.
Speaking to Ghanasportspage.com on Wednesday, the 27-year-old midfielder went on to quash any rumour claiming that he was carried outside the country for his surgery.
“It’s never true that I was treated in Germany or South Africa. To be honest, there’s no truth about that. I was treated in Ghana here [at the Technical Hospital Kumasi]. Kumasi is not Germany or South Africa. You can ask some of the loyal supporters from the Porcupine Tertiary. A friend of mine was part of the group and they always come to check me up during my operation [surgery].
“I never went to Germany or South Africa but I was operated in Ghana – Kumasi Technical Hospital to be precise. I did my rehabilitation with Dr S.K., currently with the Black Stars and Asante Kotoko. I didn’t know where these speculations came from. For Kotoko issues it’s a whole lot,” Maxwell Baakoh said.
