Heart of Lions midfielder Edmund Owusu-Ansah has apologized for his late tackle on Amos Frimpong which has left the Asante Kotoko defender injured.

The experienced Ghana midfielder landed on the ankle of the flying Kotoko full back during the midweek Premier League clash in Kumasi.

Frimpong was initially feared to have hurt himself badly and could need an extensive period to make a full recovery.

But scans later revealed the full back will be away for just a couple of weeks.

Edmund Owusu-Ansah has however phoned the Kotoko right back to offer a grovelling apology following accusations the tackle was intentional.

“I am very sorry for the injury to Amos [Frimpong] and have called him to apologize,” he told Metro FM.

“This is football and it wasn’t a deliberate attack.

“Everyone knows I am Kotoko through and through and therefore will not intentionally hurt a player of the side.

“I hope he recovers quickly to start enjoying his football again.”

Owusu Ansah captained Asante Kotoko before moving to Lions in 2007.

    There is no scientific evidence to support and prove that sex before and after affects the performance,efficiency and effective of an athletes!! If anyone wants to kick against it, that person has to give us the scientific evidence for it rather than just resorting to emotional rantings!! Scientifically, sex doesn't affect the performance of an athletes becasus sex only burn or used 200-300 OXYGEN AND CALORIES and this cannot be compared to the amount of calories and oxygen used by an athlete or a footballer during a match!! This is amount is NEGLIBLE! Sex in itself doesn't affect the athlete but rather the CO-factors like taking mood altering drinks and smoking! Again, our players having their wives and girlfriends doesn't necessarily means that they ll be having sex! Most our us don't even remember the last time we had TONGA with our wives or girlfriends so we should stop the HYPOCRISY! This is ARGUMENTUM AD POPULUM ( argument by consent)!! This means all the experts are saying the earth is the center of the planet and that the the sun relvoves around it!! Wonderfully, Copernicus and Galileo proved that to every argumentum ad populum, there is GALILEO STRAWMAN GAMBIT!! Don't always follow the crowd!! THINK FELLAS!!
