The Porcupine Warriors deputy manager has expressed his discomfort after his midfielder suffered a career-threatening injury last weekend

Asante Kotoko deputy manager Michael Osei says the team is in shock following a tibia injury that has ruled midfielder Obed Owusu out of the new season.

The 26-year-old hurt himself while playing with friends on Sunday after breaking from camp.

He had a successful surgery on Monday at the Okomfo Anokye Hospital and is expected to be out for eight months.

“I am still shocked [with Owusu’s injury] because we have just less than a week to start the new season,” Osei told Starr FM.

“We gave them [the players] two days off for them to visit their families and return to training on Monday. As I speak to you, I am still trying to come to terms with the situation,” he added.

Meanwhile, Frank Sarfo Gyamfi will continue light training as he fights to return to the pitch, according to Osei.

“I believe he needs to do some training before thinking of coming back into the first team. He hasn’t being fully fit since he pulled out from training last week. He has a good basic fitness but he has to get competitiveness and decision-making.”
