‘I rejected Kotoko for Hearts move’ – Samudeen Ibrahim reveals



Samudeen Ibrahim has claimed he turned down the chance to join Asante Kotoko in favour of a move to Hearts of Oak as he felt he wants to help the Phobians to become champions in Ghana once again.

The 20-year-old joined Hearts of Oak in 2016 on a three-year deal from King Solomon FC, after emerging as the best player in the second-tier.

“I came to Hearts of Oak because I have certain goals. It is a big challenge for me,” Samudeen told

“I could also have joined Asante Kotoko, who were interested in signing me. Yes, and not only Kotoko, there were a number of clubs that tried to lure me but I decided to sign for the rainbow colors.

“I chose to sign for Hearts because I followed my heart.  I want to help them win the league again.”

Samudeen is gradually developing into a key figure at Hearts of Oak after a difficult start to his second season under new coach Frank Nuttall, but the former division one league best player hopes to give him more chance to recapture his form.

“At first I was finding it difficult to adapt to the coach’s tactics, but now I have adapted to it and am enjoying the system,” Samudeen added.

“I don’t think I will fail to make an impact. I love the system and it will even bring the best out of me.”

The last time Hearts of Oak won the league was in 2009.
