However, Odotei has offered explanation as to why the player’s treatment has delayed.”

“After initial treatment failled to cure him He had an MRI which showed that he needs surgery. Two local hospitals were recommended so we got invoices from them.

“However his agent came in to say he xould want the surgery to be done in Jordan and gave a contact to for us to ascertain the cost. The agent got back to us just this Monday evening with unofficial estimates not on any letterhead.”

“We are on meeting player now to let him know the way forward. It has delayed because of his agent not because of the club, ” Odotei explained.
