“It wasn’t spiritual, I was suffering from running stomach,” Awako opens up


The midfielder insists suggestions that he was having nightmares die to spiritual attack is fiction of someone’s imagination

Hearts of Oak midfielder Gladson Awako has rejected reports that he was having spiritual attacks which led to his sabbatical leave from football since September.

The 31-year-old joined Hearts from city rivals Great Olympics but soon fled the Phobians’ camp.

Reports were rife that he was suffering from spiritual attacks and nightmares and even wanted his contract mutually terminated at a point, however, he insists that none of them were accurate.

Awako has revealed that he was having running stomach which forced him to abort the club’s preparations towards the new season.

As a result he missed Hearts Caf Champions League games against Guinean side CI Kamsar and Moroccan giants Wydad Athletic Club as well as four games played in Ghana Premier League.

“I wasn’t well. Before God and man, I wasn’t well. My teammates, team manager and coaches well all aware I was suffering from a serious running stomach,” Awako told Accra 3 Sports.

“The club granted me permission to go and treat myself during the period.

“I never said anything during that period, and the talk of spiritual attacks should be disregarded.

“The reason why I’ve not yet played a game since I joined Hearts of Oak is because I was not physically fit. It’s not spiritual,” he added.

Awako returned to training on Monday, November 22 and could be part of Hearts squad that will face JS Souara in the playoffs of Caf Confederation Cup this weekend should he impress coach Samuel Boadu at training.
