Vincent Atingah and Thomas Abbey are fine: Hearts of Oak

Published on: 11 January 2017

Accra Hearts of Oak have allayed fears over the fitness of defender Vincent Atingah and midfielder Thomas Abbey.

The two players picked up knocks in the team's pre season friendly with Bechem United last Sunday at the Accra Stadium.

Many feared the injuries the players sustained could keep them out for a very long time but the team's physiotherapist Okyere Agyei Baffour says there is nothing to worry about.

“The injuries we had today [on Sunday] were not career threatening injuries; they were not that serious though we had to bring the players out for other to have some playing time,” Baffour told

"Abbey had a knock to the dorsum of his left foot; it is not serious. He is walking on it. Actually, it was just an acute pain and he should be fine.
