Legon Cities FC centre-back Joseph Adjei has appealed to Justice Blay for the horrific incident that happened yesterday leading to the midfielder being ruled out for the remainder of the season.
Medeama SC humbled the Royals by 2-1 at the Akoon Park in match-week 20 of the Ghana Premier League thanks to a late winner found by mercurial midfielder Kwesi Donsu after Issaka Mohammed had already cancelled Prince Opoku Agyemang's early lead.
An incident occurred in the course of the game with just some few minutes to end the first half, defender Joseph Adjei got red carded after rushing with a horrific double-leg tackle on Justice Blay which resulted into breaking his leg.
The 28 year old was stretched off to the Tarkwa Municipal Hospital where the Doctors indicated he has suffered a fractured fibula and will be sideline for 2-3 months meaning he will miss the rest of the season.
After that unpleasant scene, Joseph Adjei in an interview has expressed so much regret on the unfortunate incident dubbing it as accidental and not intentional like some people believe.
He added by apologising to Justice Blay and disclosed he has spoken with him last night and this morning and will also offer his quota to help in the rehabilitation process. He told Happy FM in Accra;
“I am not in a good mood because of Justice Blay’s incident. I feel bad this morning as the thought runs through my mind. It was accidental and not intentional."
“I spoke to him yesterday and done the follow-up this morning. This is somebody that we are both in the national camp and there is world cup qualifiers coming up."
“It wasn’t my intention to hurt him. When the situation happened I was thinking about his career. I am very sorry for the incident that happened. I didn’t mean to do that as what people perceive."
“I will also do my part to be able to help him through this situation."
