Kotoko to punish injured midfielder

Jackson Owusu will be punished by the Porcupine Warriors for picking up an injury during an unsanctioned game

The former Berekum Chelsea player suffered a broken shin and underwent a successful surgery at the Akomfo Anokye Hospital on Monday, but is in danger of missing the 2015-16 season.

“We will punish Jackson Owusu for picking up an injury in a game that was not sanctioned. We have our code of conduct and we will look at the appropriate punishment for him.


“But we will help him recover and will also foot his medical bills,” Michael Osei, the assistant coach of Kotoko told Happy FM.

Jackson Owusu had his salary cut down for playing in an unsanctioned gala competition some months ago, so this will be the second time he would be punished for engaging in an unsanctioned game.

Asante Kotoko will open the 2015-16 Ghana Premier League in an away fixture against sensational WAFA at Sogakope, one of the grounds they fell last season.
