Emmanuel Agyemang Badu strangely revealed that he paid for his medical treatments when he sustained injuries whiles playing for the Black Stars.
Speaking to Happy FM, Jerry Akaminko surprisingly revealed that no official checked up on him after his sustained the career threatening injury.
“They [officials] had other players they wanted to count on so if you can’t play, they won’t mind you. I never had a single call from anybody to check up on me. It was only my teammates who would call me and talk to me,” he said.
“You are not part of the team so if you are not part of the team, who is calling to check up on you for what?
“I wasn’t surprised because it’s not a new thing. I’m not the only player who got injured in the national team and no one check up on me or is given attention. So I just motivated myself and focused ahead,” emotional Akaminko concluded.
