The playing body and technical team members of Kumasi Asante Kotoko will on August 27, 2020, undergo testing for the Coronavirus disease, information picked up from Opemsuo Radio has revealed.
Since March, football has been on suspension in Ghana as a result of a ban imposed by the government as one of the measures to curb the spread of the deadly Covid-19 disease.
After 5 months, it is understood that a return of football is imminent even though the fight against the pandemic is not over.
As a requirement before any team can resume training, Kumasi Asante Kotoko is getting ready to test its players for the Covid-19 disease as they wait on the government to lift the ban on football.
The club is taking the step in order to be ready to start training whenever the official announcement is given.
All players, as well as each technical team member, will be tested for the disease next week to know their status.
It will be in preparation for the 2020/2021 Ghana football season where the Porcupine Warriors will be participating in the Premier League as well as the FA Cup competition.
In addition, the Ghanaian giant has been selected to represent the country in the next edition of the CAF Champions League.
