Arsenal loaned goalkeeper David Ospina discharged from hospital after head collision


Arsenal goalkeeper, David Ospina, who is currently on loan at Napoli has been discharged from the hospital after he collapsed unconscious on the pitch following a knock to the head during a Serie A game against Udinese on Sunday.

The 30-year-old Colombian goalkeeper received treatment after colliding with striker Ignacio Pussetto ten minutes into the game at the Stadio San Paolo. He was treated on the pitch and returned to play with bandages around his head.

However, 41 minutes later, Ospina collapsed to the ground as medics rushed onto the pitch, with the player stretchered off and transferred to hospital where he was admitted.

On Monday afternoon, Napoli confirmed that the father of two was discharged from hospital and has since returned home to his family.

“David Ospina was this afternoon discharged from the clinic where he had been admitted last night for a series of investigations and specialist visits,” read a Napoli statement.

“All tests are negative. The visits [ruled out] any problems. The player has been advised to have a few days off and will not respond to the call-up of his national team.”

Ospina has also been forced to withdraw from his country’s upcoming friendlies against Japan and South Korea as a precaution.


‘My mother was teary when she heard Ken Agyapong was quitting politics’- Owusu Bempah


The founder and leader of the Glorious Word and Power Ministry International, Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah has reacted to the decision of the Member of Parliament of Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong to quit active politics.

According to the man of God, his mother is sad over the decision by Kennedy Agyapong to quit politics because she is very fond of him.

“My mum called me and informed me about Kennedy Agyapong’s decision to quit politics. My mum was really teary when she was informing me because she is really fond of Kennedy Agyapong.

She hasn’t even met him in person before but she really likes him. I was surprised so I called Sammy Awuku to confirm the rumours but he allayed my fears. I had to call my mum to inform her that it was all a lie to enable her to calm down”, Owusu Bempah disclosed.

The man of God also stated that Kennedy Agyapong is an honest man who has a great love for President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party.

Rev Owusu Bempah also advised government officials under the Akufo Addo led-administration to perform their duties assigned to them diligently and truthfully to uplift Ghana.

Recently it was reported that Honourable Kennedy Agyapong stated he will quit politics because there is too much hypocrisy in the New Patriotic Party which he can’t stand any more.

According to the controversial member of parliament, he has not been treated fairly by his own party and that some people are scheming to disgrace him.

“I have decided not to contest again because of NPP and their conduct. The way they are using me and making me face all sorts of embarrassment I do not think I can continue.

You can record and go and play to them. Where I have lived my life up to and they are treating me, I am calling it quits”, he revealed.

Congolese singer, Koffi Olomidé found guilty of the statutory rape of one of his former dancers when she was 15-years old


Koffi Olomidé, one of Africa’s most popular singers, has been found guilty of the statutory rape of one of his former dancers when she was 15.

He was handed a two-year suspended jail sentence by a court in France in absentia, as he failed to turn up. The ruling means the Congolese star only faces arrest if he commits further offences, says the BBC’s Nadir Djennad.

Olomidé, 62, was ordered to pay 5,000 euros ($5,700; £4,300) in damages to the former dancer. The court in Nanterre, outside Paris, also ordered him to pay a fine of the same amount for helping three women enter France illegally.

Olomidé’s lawyer has hailed the ruling as a victory, telling journalists it would result in the withdrawal of the star’s international arrest warrant.

Olomidé was first charged in 2012 with aggravated rape but the charges were reduced. Four dancers who used to work for the musician told the court that he sexually assaulted them multiple times between 2002 and 2006. They said the assaults happened in the Democratic Republic of Congo and France.

The women further alleged they were held captive in a villa outside Paris and escaped one night in June 2006, but did not return home to DR Congo for fear of reprisal. Prosecutors had been pushing for a seven-year sentence but the court dismissed the assault and kidnapping charges. Olomidé fled to DR Congo in 2009 promising to defend himself but failed to appear for the trial in France which, at the women’s request, was held behind closed doors in a Paris court.


Woman gives birth to sextuplets in under 10 minutes in Texas


A Nigerian woman in Houston, Texas, has given birth to sextuplets in under 10 minutes.

Thelma Chiaka welcomed four boys and two girls on Friday morning at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas.

Having sextuplets is so rare that Chiaka beat the odds to become one in 4.7 billion in the world.

All six babies were born between 4.50am and 4.59am with weights ranging from one pound, 12 ounces to two pounds, 14 ounces.

According to the hospital, each of the babies are in a stable condition and will continue to be supervised in the advanced neonatal intensive care unit. The mother is also doing well.

While Chiaka has yet to name all of her children, the hospital revealed that she has named her two daughters Zina and Zuriel.

Black Stars denied access to Tang Palace hotel, players stranded


Ghana’s preparations to play Kenya in their final 2019 Africa Cup of Nations got off to a bad start when players and coaching staff were denied access to their team camping base of Tang Palace Hotel on Monday night, Ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

This has left several players who had travelled from abroad to join the team to start their training stranded in the streets of Roman Ridge in the suburb of Accra where the hotel is located.

Members of the technical team have also been left stranded and unable to access their rooms after the management of the hotel refused to allow the national team to start their camping.

There is uncertainty over why the hotel has refused to allow the team to gain access. Hotel insiders say the Normalisation Committee has not paid some huge amounts owed the hotel while others claim the hotel is demanding immediate payment before the players are allowed in.

This is a major embarrassment for the Normalisation Committee as their first big assignment in the country has hit a snag, drawing sharp criticism over the shambolic arrangements.

Barcelona forward Kevin-Prince Boateng to benefit from Suarez’s injury


Ghana forward Kevin-Prince Boateng could enjoy some playing minutes for Barcelona following the injury to Luis Suarez on Sunday.

Suarez sustained an ankle injury during Barcelona 4-1 win over Real Betis in the Spanish La Liga on Sunday night.

Medical tests have shown that the Uruguay international will be out for the next 10 to 15 days.

Boateng is expected to take up the mantle in the absence of the former Liverpool marksman when the Blaugrana engage Espanyol in the Catalan derby after the international break.

Boateng was signed on loan from Italian side US Sassuolo in the January transfer window to provide cover for Suarez, though he has featured less than many had expected.

The Ghana international has played just two matches for Barcelona. He was thrown into the line-up for the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-final away at Sevilla, despite only joining a day or so before, as he featured for 63 minutes before being taken off.

His only other match came against Real Valladolid, once again starting but being withdrawn on the hour mark. The 32-year-old did not score in either game.

While Boateng was aware that he was not brought in to become a starter, perhaps he thought that he would still enjoy more minutes than he has.

The derby against Espanyol could provide a perfect opportunity for the former Las Palmas forward to show that he still has some worth for Valverde as the Blaugrana enter the final stretch of the season.

Don’t tell me if I see the light I will join NPP-Actress Tracy Boakye tells Socrates


Actress Tracy Boakye, has vehemently rejected suggestion she is blindly supporting the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and that when she sees the light, she will cross carpet to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The actress cum film producer, who said this on Peace FM’s entertainment Review programme on Saturday monitored by ghanadat.com, told colleague movie producer, Socrates Sarfo who is a staunch supporter of the NPP and President Akufo-Addo, she has seen the light already and so needs not NPP to see it.

During the discussion, Mr Sarfo had commended the actress for her support for the NDC but quickly added that it is his prayer that she will sooner than later, see the good works of the President and switch camp to the NPP.

Mr Sarfo’s comment erupted laughter but that was short-lived as Ms Boakye quickly interjected saying his wish will never happen because she has seen the light already except that they were quenched by the NPP.

“But I pray that you will see the light and the vision of Nana Addo has for the country and join the NPP”.

“Oh no no no…. if you tell me if I see the light….., it won’t work I have seen the light already! That prayer I cancel it in Jesus name! I am waiting for John Mahama’s light and so it won’t work. I will wait! You have collapsed everything”.

She continued by saying, that prayer will not work because she is waiting for Mr Mahama, who has been elected once again to lead the NDC, to come back to continue the good works he started.

The mother of one said, the current government has worsened the plight of Ghanaians. According to the Kumawood actress, she has already seen the light reason she supports former President John Mahama and the NDC.

She continued that she is committed to the NDC and waiting for Mr. Mahama’s light which has been quenched by the Akufo-Addo government, making life unbearable for Ghanaians. She said, even though the system is not favourable, she is working hard and so she is good in the midst of the economic general hardship but believes she could have achieved more if it was the previous administration.

Tracy, who is on record to have said she wants her casket painted with NDC colours when she dies, owns the Shakira Movie Productions, Signature Salon, and Short Code bar and lounge businesses.

Ghana’s hopes of luring Hudson-Odoi on rocks after England call-up


Ghana’s hopes of seeing Chelsea wonder-kid Callum Hudson-Odoi in a Black Stars jersey appears to have been dashed following his call-up into the England senior national team ahead of their EURO 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Montenegro.

The 18-year-old whose dad, Bismarck Odoi played for Accra Hearts Of Oak, was initially included in the England Under-21 squad and was expected to make his debut for The Young Lions in friendlies against Poland and Germany.

However, shortly after joining up with Aidy Boothroyd’s squad he was told to instead join up with Gareth Southgate’s senior side at St George’s Park.

Hudson-Odoi who was part of England’s World Cup winning side at the U-17 level in India in 2017 is still eligible to play for the Black Stars until he makes his debut for England in a competitive match.

This is likely to happen as the young prodigy’s recent form With Chelsea, especially in the UEFA Europa League is what has earned him the call up to Gary Southgathe’s team and erases any hopes of ever seeing him play for the Black Stars.
