A physiotherapist at the Accra Sports Stadium Clinic David Tetteh has disclosed why Ghanaian players mostly suffer from ankle and knee injuries.

Tetteh says their injuries are a result of the bad nature of our pitches.

Several players in the local league visit the clinic with knee and ankle injuries.

Speaking in an interview on Happy FM’s program to discuss issues on Health and Sanitation, he said, "Most of our players complain about ankle and knee injuries when they visit us. These players suffer from these injuries mostly because of the bad pitches they play on."

"I will advise them to seek early treatment when they get these injuries", he added.
