Also on admission at the same facility are Ollenu Ashietey and Nana Berchie, driver of the bus.

According to Dr. Michael Leat, Medical Director of the Club “their conditions are stable”, which has also been confirmed by a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.

The expatriate coach and the two other patients would, continue to be under observation by the Doctors for some time, before being discharged.

Dr. Leat told the GNA Sports that, the players would require a couple of weeks to recover fully from the horrific accident, to play the rest of the league matches.

“Definitely, the players are psychologically traumatized and would need some days off before they get back to action”, he added.

The team was returning to Kumasi after playing a mid-week premier league match against Inter Allies in Accra, which Kotoko lost the match by 0-1.

The equipment officer, Kofi Asare, was killed when the bus on which the team was traveling run into a KIA cargo truck.
