Kumasi Asante Kotoko striker, Nathaniel Asamoah sustained a close head injury during Sunday, 30th October, 2011 Premier League game between the club and Kpando-based Heart of Lions at the Baba Yara Stadium.

The injury occurred after the player landed on the pitch at the occipital region of the skull after colliding with Lions’ goalkeeper, Nana Bonsu.

There was a brief loss of consciousness for about five seconds after which the player gained consciousness.

The player subsequently complained of dizziness and the medical doctor of the club Dr Kwaku Boateng, after neurological assessment of the player on the pitch, called in for the ambulance and the player was stretched off the pitch into the ambulance in cervical collar to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for a CT scan. CT scan results did not show any structural damage to the brain; however the player will be under strict observation for about a week in order to make sure there is no post concussion syndrome.

Currently, the player is stable and there is no cause for alarm for now. The medical department of the club under the able leadership of Dr Kwaku Boateng is very grateful to everybody for their support especially the medical staff from the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and St John Ambulance who were on duty during the match.

The medical Department is also grateful to the management of the club for their support.
