Striker Abdul Fatawu Safiu has reacted following the termination of his contract at Asante Kotoko after just three-months.
The experience attacker was released by the Porcupine Warriors on Monday after rejoining the Kumasi-based giants few weeks ago.
Per Kotoko, the decision to terminate the contract of the attacker is as a result of a medical issue.
“Asante Kotoko can confirm that it has relieved forward, Abdul Fatawu Safiu due to medical reasons. Asante Kotoko entered into an employment contract with the player in order to meet registration deadlines as announced by the Ghana Football Association, and had to ensure that the player undergoes the pre-competition medical assessment which is the basic and compulsory requirement by the GFA.
“This medical assessment was duly done awaiting further tests. The further assessment by the club’s medical team revealed other health-related issues which could rule him out for a long period. The club, after being informed about the situation, concluded that continuing an employment contract with the player would not be of full benefit to both parties - the club and the player. Details of the specific medical condition have been clearly communicated to the player,” the club statement from Asante Kotoko said.
However, the former Inter Allies star has taken to social to express his disappointment following the termination of his contract but he aims to bounce back stronger.
“It’s a heavy load to bear but I carry it well," wrote the striker.
