This is the problem with some of these professional local players ..why will you go back to your homes and play football at some backyard pitch .. it has happened several times..they will go and get injured..is a big problem.. well I pray you get the help you need

let him go to the sports radio/Tv stations in Kumasi they will help him don’t let this lead to something huge
