‘I will only leave Hearts if the club deems it right to do so’ – Abednego Tetteh

Newly signed Hearts of Oak striker, Abednego Kofi Tetteh, has made it clear he will only accept a move away from the club if both parties feel it will be in their best interest to do so.

Meanwhile, concerns have been raised by the Phobians fans that the former Al Hilal forward has failed to stay more than two seasons in all the clubs he has played for since shooting himself into the limelight in 2016, and it is likely he might leave them to their fate when he is most needed.

Abednego, who recently signed a three-year deal with his darling club Hearts of Oak says he is a professional player and will welcome a move away from the club despite hugely professing love for the Phobians, but will only do so when it is beneficial for him as a player and the club as well.

“I have had offers from both Asante Kotoko and Hearts in time past,” Abednego told in a live Instagram video chat.

“I chose Hearts because of something special I have in my heart for them of which I always like to keep it to myself.

“However, if there is any lucrative offer for me and I feel it will both benefit me and Hearts, why not,” he added.

“If the club feels it will be of immense help in my football career, I will welcome it.

“The basic business in football today is the buy-and-sell mantra so there is every need to welcome opportunities if they come knocking at your door, and this is against the backdrop of serving the interest of the club and me.”

Abednego played for Bechem United in 2016 where he scored 12 goals in the Premier League – netting a hat trick against Hearts on match day 27 at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park.

He then moved to Sudan the following season to play for Al Hilal Omdurman. Switched to Ethiopia to play for Jimma Aba the same season and made a u-turn to Sudan to ply his trade with Al Hilal Obeid in 2018.

The former MTN FA Cup winner later had short stints with Kashmir and Trau FC in India in 2019 before returning to Ghana to sign for Hearts of Oak.
