Some 15 Ghanaian footballers who recently returned from Ethiopia and were quarantined at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram have been released.
This came after the Ghana Health Service gave them all clear.
The players came back from Addis Ababa two weeks ago after an initial desperate call to the government of Ghana and the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Leader of the team Lee Addy, who played for the Black Stars at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, expressed their gratitude to the government of Ghana for facilitating their return.
“On behalf of the players, I would like to thank the Government of Ghana, the GFA, the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) and everybody who contributed for us to be brought back home,” he told the GFA Communications team.
“We say a big thank you to the GFA, especially Mr. Alex Asante, the Deputy General Secretary; they have done very, very well.
“I will like to use this opportunity to thank the media, the people who spread the message for the government to come to our aid.
“We thank the Ghanaian public and the Doctors who took care of us upon our return. May God bless us all.”
