Former Asante Kotoko defender Gideon Baah has heaped praises on the club for not neglecting him during his career-threatening injury which kept him out from the game for about nine months.
Baah, 28, suffered a broken shin in April 2010 while playing for the Porcupines in a Premier League away game against bitterest rivals, Hearts of Oak.
The former Black Stars left-back underwent a surgery that cost the club thousands of Ghana Cedis after which the club spent another whopping sum of money to ensure that he went through his rehabilitation program successfully.
Baah recounted the painful experience from the injury to his recovery and describes the help Kotoko gave him then as one that 'still beats his imagination.'
"I think they did more than what a club like Kotoko could do in Ghana and it still beats my imagination," Baah said in an interview with Kumasi-based radio station Angel FM
"The level of attention that was given to my injury, and the professionalism of the treatment I had were just so exceptional."
The defender opines that, he sometimes counts himself lucky that he was playing for the Porcupines when he suffered the horrific injury. 
 "I tell myself that, I was lucky to have had that kind of care and treatment. Everybody knows how it is when you sustain an injury in Ghana. But I was lucky that, I was playing for Kotoko."
"Stories of players being left on their own by their clubs after sustaining career-threatening or even lesser injuries are so rampant in Ghana. I, therefore, count myself lucky. I still think about it now and thank God that, I was fortunate. I still thank Kotoko for what they did for me at that time."
