Over 15 Hearts of Oak players have been hospitalised over strange disease in various hospitals in Accra, according to reports. The unknown illness is set to affect the Phobians' preparations for their match-week 29 game against Bibiani Gold Stars on Wednesday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Key players like Seidu Suraj and Amankwah Baafi have been hospitalised over the strange illness.

Ansah Botchway was rushed to a clinic in Mamprobi on Sunday night while midfielder Nurudeen Abdul Aziz is on admission at the Universal Clinic in Madina.

Former Black Satellites skipper Afriyie Barnieh first reported coughing, cold and malaria before he was rushed for treatment.

Only five players reported for training on Monday after most of the players could not attend the training session ahead their league game against Gold Stars. However, Sulley Muntari, Samuel Inkoom and Gladson Awako are not among those affected by the illness.

Food poisioning has been ruled out of the illness as the above named players also ate the same food they had before their game against Dreams FC over the weekend.

The players suspect they might have caught their illness as the team's camp hotel which is said to be mosquito infested as they have might have had some bites from the malaria-causing insect.

It is however not known if the club has managed to bring the issue under control with 24 hours before their match against the visiting team who might have already started their journey to Accra.
