John Antwi pays for surgery for Dreams FC captain
Lucio had suffered injuries with his knee, and as Dreams FC are a midtable Ghanaian side the cost of surgery would have put a significant strain on the club’s finances.
As a result, Antwi, who played for Dreams FC as a youth player until 2010, has offered to fund the surgery which will be conducted in Egypt. Such is the kindness of Antwi’s act that Dreams FC put out a statement thanking the player for his services.
“The Board and Management of Dreams Football Club wish to express its profound appreciation to our former player John Antwi for his immense support to Charles Osei Lucio. Lucio has undergone successful surgery to repair a nagging knee injury in Egypt.”
“Our former player John Antwi elected himself to bear the exorbitant cost of the operation and his rehabilitation. The entire family of Dreams FC is extremely grateful for this gesture from John Antwi as we collective bid to have our general captain return to first team duties in the nearest possible time.”
Antwi will now focus on the Egyptian Premier League as Misr El Makkasa host Zamalek in their next game which will take place on Thursday 16th of August at 9PM Egyptian time.
