Premier league Club, Kumasi Asante has confirmed the termination if the contract of Abdul Fatawu Safiu.
The team confirmed in a statement that the contract of the player was terminated due to medical reasons.
The management explained had it conducted a series of medical examination and the outcome showed that the player would not be fit to play for a long period.
The statement from the team read “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.
It is imperative to note that the GFA has rejected his registration , so keeping him would not be in the best interest of the club and the player, hence the decision to end the relationship.
The club wishes Abdul Fatawu Safiu the very best for the future and wish to assure him that he forever remains one of us, and he is welcome to serve in any capacity in the future.”
