Former WAFA goalkeeper Richmond Ayi has divulged the reason for joining Accra Hearts of Oak upon leaving the academy side in November 2018.
According to Ayi, he joined the Accra-based club due to their caliber in African football as a whole and this being the influence in his decision.
Ayi has passed the first two months since he signed for Hearts of Oak on November 30, 2018, and has expressed his delight of working with the team and head coach Kim Grant respectively.
“For me when I left WAFA and Hearts of Oak came calling I could not have said no. It is a big African club and that is why I joined.” Ayi said.
“Hearts of Oak is not only a big Ghanaian club but across Africa, this club has some great history. This was enough to make my choice."
“It was a really great feeling when I signed and ever since I can say the team has improved with Kim Grant. We have been working hard at training and the methods of the coach are helping us.
“I am young and it was my dream to play for a big team in Ghana before moving abroad and this was done.”
