UPDATES with match against Hearts of Oak cancelled, details on tributes to be paid.

A bus carrying Ghanaian soccer team Asante Kotoko was involved in an accident on Wednesday that left one team official dead, and the coach and several players needing hospital treatment.

Mr. Arday recalled the warm relationship that exists between StarTimes and the Ghana Premiere League teams, therefore this tragedy equally touches StarTimes profoundly, hence the journey to commiserate with Kotoko upon hearing the unfortunate news.

The incident took place in the southern town of Nkawkaw, where the bus is said to have hit a stationary truck.

The actual number of the injured is unknown but the club said it will follow-up on all the treated and discharged victims for thorough examination.

The team has now confirmed that team official Kofi Asare was killed, while English coach Steven Polack and midfielder Ollennu Ashitey were still receiving treatment for their injuries.

Speaking in a media interview, the prophet said he is completely broken down and devastated by the incidence since the said team officer did not believed his prophesy. "My heart goes out to the team; speedy recovery to the injured", he wrote on Twitter.

Injured players and officials were rushed to the Holy Family Hospital, Nkawkaw.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the management, playing body and the supporters of Kumasi Asante Kotoko on this fatal accident".

Asante Kotoko were due to play Accra Hearts of Oak in Kumasi on Saturday but the league management said the match had been postponed, with no date yet fixed for the re-organised match.
