Ghanaian football team Accra Hearts of Oak on Tuesday paid a visit to their counterparts Asante Kotoko at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital donating GHs6000 after the team suffered a tragic accident last Wednesday.

Management member of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Thomas Boakye Agyemang received the Phobians at the "Kuffour" Accident Emergency Ward of the hospital. Coach Pollack who was utterly surprised with the visit extended his warmest gratitude to Hearts’ head coach, Frank Nuttall and his team for their support.
Corporate Affairs Manager, Kwaku Sakyi made the donation to Asante Kotoko on behalf of the club.
Meanwhile, in an interview with gijonlinenews.com, a management member of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Thomas Boakye Agyemang has hinted Coach Pollack was responding faster to treatment than it is expected. He expressed delight and utmost appreciation to the club while mourning their loss.
“I also want to thank the other clubs who also showed their love and sympathy towards the team and the bereaved family of the late Equipment Manager Thomas Asare. It’s rather unfortunate all this had to happen. This has really shown the unity between all football clubs in Ghana,” he said.
“Every club has been supportive and I believe we will come back strong because this is Football,” he added.
