Akowuah explains decision to join Hearts

Accra Hearts of oak new recruit, Malik Akowuah, has revealed his motive for switching camp to join the Phobians.

“I am here to win the Ghana Premier League. The Phobians have what it takes to win it  and i want to be a part of it. I will help the team with the experience i have gain from participation in the CAF Confederation Cup.”

The former Medeama SC midfielder joined the Phobians in a move that was surrounded with controversies.

He was a stalwart in Medeama’s squad that featured in last year’s CAF Confederation Cup.

The former Accra Great Olympics and AshGold marksman pitched camp with the Phobians to seek for domestic trophy, he said in an interview.

Akowuah told Sports 24 that winning the Ghana Premier League in his footballing career influenced him to pen a deal with the former Champions.

“I signed for Hearts because, as a player before you exchange a club, you have to look at the reason for joining that club. I have played in three confederation cups, one with Ashgold and two with Medeama sc.

“I have not featured in the CAF Champions League before and have not won the league before. After exhaustive deliberations with the management, I realise they want to win the league.

“Hearts have the players to win the league and they are serious about it. I joined because i want to win the league. From the preparations I have seen so far, we are poised to win the league and I will contribute enormously towards that.”
