Caleb Amankwah, the defender for Hearts of Oak, has revealed that he has been enduring pain since sustaining an injury several months ago.
Despite playing through the discomfort, the pain has worsened over time due to lack of proper treatment.
Amankwah, who played a significant role for the Phobians in the recently concluded season, expressed disappointment in the club’s neglect towards his injury. He stated that the club has not checked up on him or shown any concern about his well-being.
“They haven’t checked up on me since I sustained the injury. The club should be responsible for my treatment and recovery since I got injured while playing for them. However, no one from the team has even reached out to monitor my situation,” Amankwah said as quoted by Ghanasoccernet.
Recognizing the need to take matters into his own hands, Amankwah acknowledged that he must personally take care of his leg and seek the necessary treatment. He expressed his determination to regain full fitness and not rely on anyone else to avoid any potential disappointment.
“I know it is my leg I have to take it upon myself to treat because I can’t depend on anybody to experience any disappointment so I’ve to fight to make sure I am back to dull fitness”
“I played through pain against Kotoko without complaining. I continued to play in other matches even when the injury was minor,” he added.
With Amankwah’s contract set to expire soon, there have been no discussions about a possible extension, further adding to the uncertainty surrounding his future with the club.
