Obed Ansah appeals for support to undergo ankle surgery
Obed Ansah, a former player for Ghana’s U20 team, has pleaded with Ghanaians to support him financially so he can get ankle surgery.
Obed Ansah claims that while training with Accra Hearts of Oak of the Ghana Premier League, his ankle injury did not happen as a consequence of a tackle in a game.
The midfielder said that while his ankle hurt during the workout, he was still able to finish it. Ansah claimed that after the workout, the discomfort grew worse and prevented him from playing football.
“I got injured in my right ankle which has caused my downfall. It did not happen because of a tackle I remember we were at Hearts camp at the Lizzy Complex we were about to break that was our last training.
So we were doing Cooper Test we went for first run, then second run, we were about to go for the third run then I felt pain in my leg but I managed to complete the Cooper Test. Later Ozzie our masseur came to look at me I was given some medicines and we went to see the doctor. I took all the medicines but when I go for training I still felt the pain,”he said on Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV on Youtube.
“For now I can’t play active football my leg sometimes vibrates and I don’t know what to do. Another thing is I don’t have money if I had money I will go and do the operation myself. Then I will look for a Division One club or get one of the small clubs to pick up because when I get football I will still play,”
“For now if I get someone who will help me so that I will do the operation on my leg…sometimes it breaks my heart that I haven’t learned another profession apart from football that God gifted me. Sometimes I think about it and then forget it, I feel sad sometimes because of the pain I am going through. My inability to play football worries me a lot,”
