The former Ghana youth shot-stopper has apologised to his side's top hierarchy after failing to attend training sessions without permission

Medeama goalkeeper Eric Ofori Antwi has sent an apology to the club's top hierarchy following his recent absent without official leave.

The 23-year-old joined the Tarkwa-based side from Asante Kotoko in a swap deal involving Abass Mohammed last January but left camp over unpaid salaries while the club was preparing for their last three games of the Ghana PL first round.

"I want to apologise to the club president, management, the technical team, my playing mates and the fans for what happened," Antwi told Medeama FM.

"What I did was wrong. I'm sorry and have regretted for taking such a decision. I promise that it won't happen again and want everyone to forgive me and expect the best things from me in the second round of the season.

"I strongly believe that I can still play a major role in the club's quest to achieve success so I need to motivate myself and accept any form of punishment that will be melted out to me. I will use the right channel next time to demand my unpaid salaries and bonuses," he added.

Goal understand that Medeama's management will meet this weekend to take a decision on the incident after they sacked third-choice goalkeeper Joseph Halm a fortnight ago for a similar offence.

Halm has swiftly signed for Sharks until end of the season.
