Former Ghana Premier League players have criticized Legon Cities for the alarming health condition of goalkeeper William Essu.
The Black Meteors shot-stopper is in critical condition as he has been battling illness for some time now.
Essu wrote to Ghana’s head coach Ibrahim Tanko to excuse him from national team duties due to his illness while also calling for help to treat it.
In response to the goalkeeper’s situation, Legon Cities issued a statement appealing to the media and the general public to cautious in relation to their reportage.
The club also revealed arrangements are being made to help the player in question.
However, former Asante Kotoko forward Abdul Fatawu Safiu has questioned the club’s claim of being aware of the situation recently.
In a post on X, Safiu wrote, “Kaish Ghana football. You telling us your attention was just drawn to your very own goalkeeper health issue meaning you people never knew.”
Eric Donkor, who also played in Ghana’s top flight also posted: “The Welfare of our local footballers needs much attention.”
Ex-Hearts of Oak midfielder Emmanuel Nettey added: “Wow, just wow, a player under contract, and your attention was drawn when his pics were on social media about his illness and the league starts over the weekend, so his absence didn’t matter cos you had another player to play in his position.”
According to reports, Essu is owed bonuses by the club as well as salary from some months ago.
