Kotoko goalie ruled out for six weeks

Kotoko’s longest serving goalie, Isaac Amoako, will be out of training sessions for the next one month and two weeks after a knee injury he suffered when Kotoko played King Faisal in the semi-final of the FA Cup resurfaced last week, forcing him to seek immediate medical attention before the league season opens.
Isaac Amoako said checks and tests he has so far undergone indicate that he would not need surgery, but he has been instructed to rest as treatment continues.
Amoako, who has served Kotoko since the 2005/2006 season, hoped that he would recover early enough to taste league action when the season opens in September.
“It is an old injury that has reared its ugly face. I first had it when we played King Faisal. It was treated. I even trained and I was well until late last week when it showed up again,” Amoako said.
“I have done the necessary checks and examinations in hospital. Initially, there were fears that I could undergo surgery but the information I was given subsequently is that, I need to rest while I take my medication. That is what I am doing at the moment,” he added.
The Porcupines haven’t formally started their pre-season programme yet. They have been training and preparing for a proper pre-season take-off.
They are expected to travel to Spain for a tour before they return home to continue preparation for what will definitely be a busy season.
Isaac Amoako is praying that he heals in time to play his goalkeeping role better than he has done in previous seasons.
