Osafo Marfo visits injured Kotoko coach

Osafo Visits Pollack Osafo Marfo visiting Steve Pollack at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Marfo is the latest government appointee to visit Asante Kotoko coach Steve Polack at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

The Englishman is still on admission after sustaining serious injuries in Wednesday night's fatal accident involving the team.

Asante Kotoko were returning from Accra to Kumasi after a league match against Inter Allies at the El Wak Stadium last Wednesday.

Their bus rammed into a stationary vehicle at Nkawkaw and that led to the death of the team's deputy equipment manager Kofi Asare.

Some players and technical team members on the bus sustained injuries.

They were treated and discharged later on Thursday with the exception of midfielder, Ollenu Ashitey who was admitted for close observation.

Ollenu was admitted alongside Steven Polack and the bus driver, Joseph Nana Berkye who had surgeries late Thursday evening.
