Despite revealing his desires to play for Asante Kotoko,
Black Stars defender Lee Addy has made a revelation which might not go down
well with the Porcupine Warriors supporters. Addy revealed in an interview with
ghanasportspage.com that he and his household are all supporters of Accra
Hearts of Oak, the bitterest rivals of Asante Kotoko.
Professionally speaking, Addy stressed that football has developed beyond those days when players refused to score against clubs they support when they happen to play against them. According to him, football is his profession through which he feeds his nuclear family and that, despite his love for the Phobians, he will always score against them anytime he comes up against them.
Lee Addy made this frantic revelation speaking to ghanasportspage.com when he was pushed to name the club he supports in the Ghana Premier League.
“For me I am still playing but the truth is one, and
football is not like the olden days where if you support Kotoko or Hasaacas and
you meet Hasaacas you don’t have to score against them”, Addy stated. “For me
the truth is I support Accra Hearts of Oak, all my family members support Accra
Hearts of Oak, but that doesn’t mean if I meet Accra Hearts of Oak I can’t
score them, I have to score them”, he maintained.
In his submission, the 29-year old former Berekum Chelsea defender recalled being asked not to score against Hearts of Oak during his days in the local league when he met the league giants, citing the fact that he hails from Accra, but he refused and played his heart out as professionally as he could, and would do same today if he should face the Accra based side as opponents in any competition.
“I quiet remember when I was playing in the local league (for Berekum Chelsea) we were to play against Accra Hearts of Oak, people were saying am from Accra so you have to allow Hearts to beat your team, but I told them that it’s the job through which I feed my wife, my children and family so I can’t allow Hearts to beat me so my wife and children starve, I have to do my job”, he revealed. “Everybody is playing to get money to look after their family so I cannot play it soft because of your selfishness, now football has changed, if I support Kotoko and I happen to meet Kotoko if I get the chance I will score, I will play it just as I will against any other club, but the truth is I support Accra Hearts of Oak”, he concluded.
Addy is still an active player and has been without a club for some time now since leaving the PSL. The Accra born rigorous defender expressed in an interview with ghanasportspage.com recently, his readiness to play for Asante Kotoko or any other local premier league club should he be contacted for a move.
