The Ghanaian giants would be propping up into the approaching season by next week without a substantive head coach whiles the fracas between their departing coach, Dr Prosper Narteh Ogum and the club he led for his maiden league trophy as a coach remains irresolvable.

Justice Blay who also suffered a similar injury at training when Kotoko was preparing to face bitterest rivals Hearts in April this year has also underwent a successful surgery on his damaged knee is hoping to join his team mates after all the wounds are completely healed.

Others are, Sheriff Mohammed, the workaholic midfielder still needs an extensive time to be in full force after he had gone through the best of recuperation periods. He had an injury lay off since match day 29 when the team was in training session to face Ash Gold which was later postponed. Clinton Opoku who has also endured a knee surgery just last week is a player among the four to spend longer days on the sidelines.
