Whatever it takes;we are here to help Raphael Dwamena- Levante coach

Coach of Levante Paco Lopez says he has personally told Raphael Dwamena that he has the support of the entire club, players and staff and has made it clear that they will do "whatever it takes to help him".

Only 24 years old Raphael Dwamena has been forced to provisionally quit playing football due to a serious heart condition suffered at the beginning of his professional career and in 2017 scuppered a move to English premiership side Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Ghanaian is awaiting for test of new results that will determine the extent of the ailment.

Speaking in an interview with the media the coach of the Levant clarified that they approved the results of his medicals conducted when joining the club because they did not detect the heart that has prematurely truncated his career for now.

"Dwamena is affected, but he is a very positive boy," Lopez said. "Beyond being able to participate more or less when he was with us, he is an excellent person," he concluded.
