The Ghana Football Association’s Medical Committee will conduct a day’s seminar for Masseurs, Physiotherapists and Medical Doctors of all Premier and Division One League Clubs next month.

The seminar which will be held next Wednesday, February 1, will be held at the Conference Room of the Football Association.

It is supposed to put the masseurs, physiotherapists and medical doctors in a good state ahead of the new football season expected to kick-off on February 4 at all the league centres.

Topics expected to be discussed include injury prevention, principles of sports injury management, PCMA, sudden cardiac arrest and CPR.

A statement from the football association informed the clubs that the seminar will only admit only certified personnel of the three professions stated above.

Clubs are therefore encouraged to detail at least any one of the three professions for the seminar.

Meanwhile, Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan has said he is not hunting for individual prizes at the 2017 African Cup of Nations in Gabon.

He says that he is rather focused on the team’s pursuit of the title.

Gyan became Ghana’s all-time highest scorer in the history of the African Cup of Nations when he headed home a Jordan Ayew cross against Mali on Saturday.

He wants Ghana to pick up the trophy at the end of the tournament.

“In tournaments, we do not look for personal glory. When it happens, I will be happy but when the team wins, I will be happy too. As the captain, I need to lead the team to win and that is the most important thing right now. If after that, I get on to the scoresheet, then I can celebrate my personal achievement.
