Former Accra Hearts of Oak goalkeeper, Sammy Adjei has expressed his readiness and desire to relaunch his goalkeeping career with the Club after staying out of football for almost four years.
The inborn goalie was named Sammy Adjei Barthez during his pinnacle days following his excellent and diligent piece of goal keeping which could be likened to the work of former Manchester United stopper, Fabian Barthez but this natural talent hit a snag abruptly due to some personal decisions.
Many people think the ex- Black Stars number one choice goalie has now ended his career but the 2000 CAF Champions League winner insists he is still strong and proactive enough to keep the post for the Rainbow boys.
“I’m ready and active enough to return to the pitch and play for my darling club, Accra Hearts of Oak.
“What I am now waiting for is to get an official invitation from Hearts management and the technical team for training assessment before we enter into contractual terms.
“In fact, as I’m talking to you now, I can assure you that I have had enough training and stamina which when Hearts invite me, I will not disappoint my fans.
‘’Even Medeama recently wanted to offer me an outright contract but I wanted them to let me have training exercise with them before the contractual terms which they didn’t like it in that way’’. The 37 year- old goal keeper added.
“Right now, I can tell you that some section of the Hearts fans came to my house last week and pleaded that I should return to the club and I told them I’m ever ready to serve the club but I can’t join the team whiles the management and the technical team have not asked me to join them so I’m still waiting for Hearts to officially invite me to train with team’’. He exclusively told Cape Coast-based ATL FM.
However goalkeeper has also opened his doors to all interested clubs should his number one target Hearts, refuse to welcome his decision.
