Legon Cities goalkeeper William Essu of Legon Cities has received support from the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) following his ailment which has sparked concern in the local media in the last few days.
The ailing goalkeeper's situation has emerged as a matter of urgency following the death of his teammate Sylvester Sackey who also died after struggling to recover from a sickness.
The footballer is believed to be dealing with a severe condition and fearing an unforeseen terrible incident due to a lack of financial support.
To express their concern for the welfare of players in Ghana, the PFAG has thus shown their support.
The PFAG said in a statement posted on their website that executive members encouraged the goalkeeper and gave him assurances of their support.
“In a heartwarming display of solidarity and camaraderie within Ghana football, our Vice President, Tetteh Zutah, and General Secretary, Anthony Baffoe, paid a visit to the ailing Legon Cities goalkeeper, William Essu.
“The visit was a testament to the PFAG's commitment to looking after its own, especially when a fellow footballer is going through a challenging period of illness.
“Tetteh Zutah and Anthony Baffoe arrived at William Essu's residence with smiles and words of encouragement, aiming to lift the spirits of the talented shot-stopper who has been facing health issues recently.” wrote the association.
Meanwhile, following a screenshot circulating on various media platforms revealing a letter written by the player demanding winning bonuses during his time with the Black Meteors to attend to his health, Legon Cities have advised the public to be “circumspect” in their submissions regarding the issue.
