I won’t turn down an opportunity to play for Kotoko or Hearts of Oak – King Fiasal defender David Oppong Afrane

Published on: 19 July 2023

King Faisal defender David Oppong Afrane has opened up on his intentions to join either Asante Kotoko or Hearts of Oak following an impressive season in the Ghana Premier League last season.

The Black Meteors player stood out for the Isha Allah club with top performance despite a disappointing campaign that resulted in the demotion to the Division One League.

Afrane has become a subject of interest for several clubs due to his swashbuckling performance during the 2022/23 season.

Both Asante Kotoko and Hearts who had a terrible season are said to have expressed interest in the defender.

Breaking his silence to the links, the defender said he is open to joining any of the two glamourous clubs in the country.

“Yes, I have been speaking to some of the clubs but most of the calls came during national duties so I directed them to my agent”

“It's an honour for the two big clubs in Ghana (ie Kotoko and Hearts) to express interest in me, it means I'm doing something good. So should conversations go on well, I will join one of them since I can't turn down such an opportunity”

“I'm aware of the pressure in these clubs but same situation is at King Faisal and for me to deal with all the pressure here, I can do same at either Kotoko or Hearts”
