I am preparing well to play for Hearts of Oak - Ademola Kuti

Published on: 05 August 2020

The former Punjab FC player signed a two-year deal with the Phobians back in May but is yet to feature for the Accra-based club because of the suspension of football in Ghana since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the Ghanaian borders yet to be opened due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kuti remains in Nigeria and has been keeping fit on a training programme prepared for him by Hearts’ technical team.

Speaking to Hearts Media the 22-year-old forward said

“I want football to return to Ghana and I am preparing well to play for Hearts of Oak and help the team win laurels as I seek to repay the trust the club has shown in me,”

“It’s not easy in this Covid-19 pandemic, but I am trying to manage the situation; I have been at home for a while and I can tell you it’s not easy to stay out of football,”

“I can’t wait to come back to start the game, join my new teammates in trying, playing matches and helping the team win on the pitch for the fans to be happy,”

He added that he had been in regular contact with Coach Nii Odoom, who sent him messages to check on him to find out how well he was coping with the situation.

“The Hearts of Oak family are very nice and wonderful people and, I want to return to Ghana as soon as possible to help the team and show off why they have signed me,” he concluded.

Ademola Kuti played for Lobi Stars (Nigeria), Punjab FC (India),  Fujairah SC (UAE), and Techno Aryan FC (India)
