I will never forgive Asante Kotoko – Saddick Adams on terrible treatment after 2017 accident

Saddick Adams, a former striker for Asante Kotoko, has said that he will never be able to forgive the organization for the dismal treatment he received in the wake of the team’s terrible accident in 2017.

The victims, including himself, were disregarded, in the opinion of the former Atletico Madrid young player, and they did not receive the compensation they were due.

He said that the management put the players up for transfer without justification after ignoring them, and as a result, he would never forgive the team.

“I feel awful for myself. I bring it up constantly. I’ll never be able to forgive them, and the entire team must also accept this. The reason we left Kotoko is part of the story; they reasoned that perhaps we were whining excessively. Because that occurred and you informed us that this is what you would do, it was our right. No one would be grumbling now even if they had given us 1 or 2 cedis at the time. Who are you, people? they asked. You came here to sign a contract, and after you sign it, you might leave. We never even completed our deal. You can see how they simply transferred us without giving us a cause. All the players, so that we won’t moan once again,” he said in an interview with sports journalist Saddick Adams.

Former Kotoko midfielder Michael Akuffo, who was hurt in the accident, claimed in a recent interview that he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and feels scared every time he enters the field of play.

He claimed that he no longer cares about playing football due to his PTSD.

“Two days ago, I read an article about Sampson Appiah, the coach of our goalkeepers, who was described as a victim of mistreatment. It was a terrible scene, so I felt bad about it and prayed that it wouldn’t happen to any other teams. I no longer love playing football, in part because of it,” he admitted on Angel FM.

He continued by saying that in addition to being terrified when he enters the playing field, he is also terrified when he is in a moving vehicle.

“Because I’m afraid to foot onto the field because of my injury, and I’m also afraid to ride in a car. It required someone to psyche me up to come to my senses because I was depressed mentally, he continued.

After their match versus Inter Allies in Accra, the Asante Kotoko team bus was traveling back to Kumasi when a terrible accident occurred, killing Thomas Kofi Obeng Asare, the Deputy Equipment Officer.

Along with some other players and officials, Ollenu Ashitey and Baba Mahama also suffered injuries.

Saddick Adams attended Asante Kotoko for two years. His most famous performance came in the 2017 MTN FA Cup final when he scored three goals against the Porcupines’ fiercest rival, Hearts of Oak.
