Mohammed Alhassan In Stable Condition After Collapse

Accra Hearts of Oak defender Mohamed Alhassan was taken to hospital Sunday after collapsing on the pitch during his team’s 2021/2022 Ghana Premier League opening match against Legon Cities.

The 29-year-old went down immediately after the final whistle and required extensive medical attention on the pitch before he was carried out on a stretcher.

After Alhassan was taken to hospital, Accra Heart of Oak sent out word that his condition was stable. Ghanaian media outlet 3News also confirmed that Al Hassan was awake and undergoing further tests.

3News provided the first update on Alhassan’s status, saying in a tweet; “Our source says he is stable and the doctors are working on him.”

Alhassan clocked the whole 90 minutes in a match that saw his side begin their title defence with a goalless draw at Accra Sports Stadium.

He went down at the final whistle with what sources indicate was an elbow by an unnamed Legon Cities player.

Both teams immediately called for the medical staff, who raced onto the pitch to administer treatment.

His Hearts of Oak team-mates formed a shield around him as the medics provided treatment, before white sheets were held up around him to provide privacy.

Following several minutes the player was rushed to National Sports Council clinic before an ambulance rushed him to a local hospital.

Alhassan joined Hearts of Oak in December 2018 on a four-year deal after leaving another Ghanaian side Academy Boys.
