Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso survived a serious car accident in Spain on Sunday as he makes his way to the airport to fly to Ghana in next week’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone.
The midfielder was heading to the town of Loiu, 12 kilometers from Bilbao, to take a flight to Ghana to join the Black Stars for the match against Sierra Leone when the accident occurred.
Wakaso’s car hit the railing of the motorway as he drove in rainy conditions on his way to the airport for the journey to Ghana to join the national team.
A picture of his car shows that the right side front tyre and that side of the vehicle was completely damaged following the crash.
However, the influential player did not require hospital admission and continued with his journey to the airport to catch the flight home.
“Deportivo Alavés player Wakaso Mubarak has had a slight car accident this morning but he is in a perfect condition,” a club statement read.
“The incident occurred this morning on a stretch of the AP-68 motorway when the player was heading to the Loiu airport to travel to Ghana and join the national team.”
“Wakaso has resumed his way to the airport normally minutes later,” the statement added.
Wakaso later posted on his Twitter page: ”Estoy muy bien gracias a DIOS ” which translates ‘I’m very well thank God.”
The accident occurred just hours after Wakaso had played a key role in Alaves’ shock 1-0 win over Real Madrid in the Spanish top-flight on Saturday.
Wakaso was return to the Black Stars fold after being excluded from the squad that played and bombed against Kenya in the qualifiers last month.
