Kumasi Asante Kotoko have terminated the recent contract with striker Abdul Fatawu Safiu following medical assessment.

The former top scorer was set to rejoin the Porcupine Warriors after spells with Trelleborgs FF and Trollhättan in Sweden.

An employment agreement was entered but after medicals, the contract has been terminated.

“Asante Kotoko entered into an employment contract with the player in order to meet registration deadlines as announced by the Ghana Football Association, and had to ensure that the player undergoes the pre-competition medical assessment which is the basic and compulsory requirement by the GFA,” the club explained in a statement on Monday, February 5.

“This medical assessment was duly done awaiting further tests,” it added.

“The further assessment by the club’s medical team revealed other health related issues which could rule him out for a long period.

“The club, after being informed about the situation, concluded that continuing an employment contract with the player would not be of full benefit to both parties – the club and the player.”

Kotoko have since made the details of the specific medical condition known to the player.

“The club wishes Abdul Fatawu Safiu the very best for the future and wish to assure him that he forever remains one of us, and he is welcome to serve in any capacity in the future.”
