Ghana turn to Serbian healer to solve World Cup injury crisis

Published on: 30 June 2010

Ghana have turned to an effective horse placenta healer from Serbia to solve the injury crisis which is threatening its World Cup campaign, Ghanasoccernet can reveal exclusively.

Marijana Kovacevic, who is famous in world football through the application of traditional Serbian healing to heal her world-class football star clients, arrived in South Africa on Wednesday to take charge of the recovery of several Black Stars players.

Ghana are sweating over the fitness of Kevin Prince Boateng, Hans Sarpei, Asamoah Gyan, John Mensah, Andre Ayew ahead of their quarter final clash with Uruguay on Friday.

Some players in the squad also have knocks and stubborn injuries which prompted the Ghana FA (GFA) to approach Kovacevic’s methods of healing the players.

She is expected to immediately start work of the affected players to get them ready for the crucial game against Uruguay.

The GFA also held a meeting with its team doctor Dr. Percy Annan who also approved of the trained pharmacist's arrival to help accelerate the recovery of the players.

Several world class players including Robin van Persie last year turned to the Serbian healer to solve their persistent ruptured ankle ligaments problems.

Liverpool pair of Johnson and Fabio Aurelio both flew into Belgrade last year to get the treatment which helped them to recover.

Several other top class players like Frank Lampard and Yossi Benayoun have recovered fully since undergoing treatment with the expert healer.

Kovacevic's approach to healing has generated such interest that now, it is understood, she only responds to calls and text messages from trusted players.

It is understood it took hard bargaining to get her to work with the Ghana team as she only works for individuals rather than clubs or federations.

Working on a basis of recommendation, her reputation has gone sky-high to the extent that even the then Liverpool manager, whose club doctor Mark Waller is well-respected and also works for the England Under-21s, put his trust in her.

She uses fluids derived from horse placentas and electrolysis to treat the afflicted part of the players who visit her.

Players from all over Europe have been visiting Kovacevic on the basis of recommendations from international team-mates but now even clubs are giving their blessing to players seeing her.

    "Occultism"in disguise at work.Why couldn't she help her own country to win? To God alone belongs all the glory.God is our shield.Jesus is the healer. May God deliver our players from all satanic manipulations.

    Blacks...eh, blacks, why don't we reason at all? This is money gone down the drain! Why do I say this? Because it is too late! We play on Friday against Uruguay, and when did this lady arrive in camp to help? Even if she arrived a weak earlier, it still would not suffice! Muscle and bone injuries take longer to heal, but this lady's methods only accelerate the healing process. So if the average time required for, say Kevin Boateng's hamstring injury was 3 weeks in order to be healed, this woman's method would cut it in about half---that makes 1.5 weeks. Now, while the healing is going on, you are not supposed to aggravate the injury by training, or doing any strenuous stuff, etc. So assuming she manages to get each one to heal, how long could they get to train and become match fit again? I always ask why we selected 23 players! If Dede ISN'T there, SULLEY, is there. Thank God Vorsah is back too. If KPB isn't around, Derek or Appiah could play that role. If Sarpei can't make it, Rahim Ayew or Lee Addy are available. So if their knocks are not serious, why spend chunks of money to bring this lady in? This is because this lady only TREATS SERIOUS INJURIES...really SERIOUS ones not knocks - that's easy money for her, and that's a lot of cash gone down the drain for Ghana! I wish the knocked players all the best, but we must let these corrupt GFA officials account for every pesewa spent, because I know for sure that so much money is coming in, and they shall surely make excuses to SPEND and not account for it---or better still, they shall spend and inflate the actual costs! God save Africa and Ghana....! Ghana wins against Uruguay!

    If the FA knew this, why didn't they contracted her to heal Essien's knee problem.

    I wonder what kind of healing methods she is using that is soo special that they had to get her from serbia. THis is either a hook up form Milo or.... She looks like a prostitute to me. Maybe they are talking about the other healing method. Shiiiiit, that should work too. E

    This article is bogus and unwarranted. No truth to it. Ghanasoccernet... perhaps you should spend more time doing proper investigative report about the stars.

    ANOTHER T. B. JOSHUA TO TAKE CREDIT OF OUR BOYS' HARD-WON SUCCESSES. BESIDES, BEING IN SECLUSION IN THE DARK WITH A STRANGE WOMAN IS FORBIDDEN FOR THE MUSLIM PLAYERS LIKE ANDRE AND MUNTARI. I HOPE AUTHORITIES WOULD NOT CALL IT INSUBORDINATION IF SOME PLAYERS DON'T COOPERATE. SHAME ON OUR GULLIBLE OFFICIALS.
