Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan down with shoulder injury

Goalkeeper, Felix Annan is expected to return to training at Adako Jachie later this week after sitting out of the sessions for three days with a shoulder injury. The number-one goalie, broke his shoulder at training last week Tuesday. An x-ray conducted on him revealed he had a contusion at his left shoulder.

His arm was wrapped in an arm-sling, which according to the Medical Team was to reduce the weight bearing on the hand and also to hasten the recovery process.

"He played with some amount of pain against Wa All Stars. We assessed him after our return and found out that, he needed to sit out for some days to allow complete healing since there wasn't any breakage of the bone" a member of the Medical Team, Gabriel Ofori Adjei told

Annan has kept the post in all the 12 league matches Kotoko have played this season. His current injury is likely to leave him out of the Round of 64, MTN FA Cup match with Bekwai Youth Academy this weekend.

The goalie is however optimistic that he would be fit by next week. "The pains have reduced significantly. I will resume training on Friday. I will be back in time for our next league game against Aduana Stars” he said in a brief chat.
