Advising the injured players, the club’s physiotherapist Okyere Baffour said:
“When the players get injured, I think first of all, they should calm down.
“We have noticed they worry too much and listen to too many people advising them; if you pass here, you will get well within days, and if you do this or that. You see there is no shortcut to recovery. Most of these things have been researched and proven,” he told the club’s website.
