Ghanaian champions Medeama SC head coach Evans Adotey has blamed his team’s defeat to Aduana Stars FC over the weekend to injuries.
According to him, his team missed a lot of players who were on the sidelines due to injuries and that caused their defeat to Aduana Stars FC at the Nana Agyemang Badu park in Dormaa.
Adotey lamented, “We missed Sowah, Fatawu, and Kojo Amoako, and looking at the set-up, we fielded three youngsters in the game. In fact, if they can convince me, why not bring them on board in the return encounter?”
He continued, “I will not say the physically affected us because it was a game of equal. Well, we lost, I will accept the defeat. We need to go back and prepare for the African campaign.”
The absence of top striker Jonathan Sowah, wingers Derrick Fordjour and Theophilus Anobah, midfield maestro Manuel Mantey, Jean Vital Ourega, Nana Kofi Babil, and Black Stars left-back Fatawu Hamidu had a noticeable impact on the squad, forcing them to field younger, less experienced players.
Medeama are winless in two matches this season so far in the Ghana Premier League after one draw and one defeat in two outings.
