Kotoko defender Amos Frimpong has been declared fit after suffering concussion in the Porcupines’ 0-0 draw at Wa All Stars over the weekend.

The powerful centre-back has now been declared fit to play in Wednesday’s MTN FA Cup match against Abogzume Weavers in Ho which is a massive boost for the Porcupine Warriors.

He had the head collision with All Stars’ Attakora Gyimah when the two went for an aerial challenge in the second-half which resulted in the two players being substituted.

The collision resulted in Frimpong blacking out while Gyimah sustained a deep cut on his head.

Frimpong needed seven minutes of treatment on the field after a clash of heads during the Glo Premier League game on Sunday.

Precautionary tests were carried out on Frimpong by Kotoko medical officer Dr. Kwaku Boateng and the defender was allowed to return home to Kumasi on Sunday.

“He is medically cleared and would be available for selection if the coaches decide to use him in the MTN FA Cup match at Ho,” Dr. Boateng said.

Amos on the way back to Kumasi said in an interview with Kotoko Express said that he was feeling well.

He thanked Dr. Kwaku Boateng and Jerry Newton for taking good care of him in the heat of the incident.

He also thanked members of the Ghana Red Cross and the staff of the Ghana Ambulance Service who were all at hand to assist the Kotoko medics to work on him.
