Legon Cities defender Joseph Adjei has expressed a heartfelt apology for his rash tackle on Justice Blay in Ghana premier league matchweek 20 fixture at the Akoon Park last Sunday.
The Medeama midfielder was forced off just before the break after he suffered the setback in the side’s 2-1 win over Legon Cities.
Adjei came in hard on Blay, who remained on the ground for minutes with a painful right knee and had to be replaced.
Scans at the Tarkwa Municipal Hospital revealed that the midfielder has suffered a fracture of distal 1/3 of right fibula and it is unclear if he will recover fully on time to play any part in the ongoing campaign.
However, the defender says he didn’t have any malicious intent for going in for that tackle against Justice Blay and that he is really sorry for his action.
“I know that it may have seemed like I did, but I did not mean to make that Bro. My actions were unintentional, and I feel terrible,Sad and Heartbroken…I am really sorry and wish u a speedy recovery…Your comeback will be stronger than first…,” he posted on his Instagram account after the game.
