I almost killed myself: Coach of Offinso accident victims

I almost killed myself: Coach of Offinso accident victims who lost their lives during a road trip.

Augustine Mensah who sustained serious injuries from the accident which saw the demise of eight of his players explained that the thought of the pain of some parents nearly made him commit suicide.

“I was actually worried, I nearly took my life at the scene thinking of what the parent’s reaction will be,”

He added that despite the unfortunate, incident, he is not going to quit coaching

“In life there are setbacks but if you ever faced one I don’t think you should let it swallow you up,” Coach Augustine Mensah said to encourage himself.

Augustine Mensah made these revelations to the media when the Director-General of the National Sports Authority (NSA) Professor Peter Twumasi paid a visit to some of the victims of the accident.

The GFA on Sunday, September 20, 2020 sent a delegation led by Executive Council member Frederick Acheampong and Ashanti Regional Football Association Chairman, Osei Tutu Agyemang to Offinso to commiserate with families of the victims and to visit the injured players.
