Larry Sumaila’s move to Hearts of Oak has not been the dream he hoped for when he completed a transfer from Greek side PAOK in 2019.
He was dreaming to have a remarkable days for the Premier League side following his arrival under Kim Grant, but the reality is he finds himself battling for a place in the team. Indeed, it looks likely he will leave the club after five titles.
Consequently, Larry, who has only featured in few matches for the Rainbows this season, has been linked with a move away from the FA Cup winners.
The talented defender insists taking his time and waiting for the Lord to direct him for a new move will be the best despite interest from some clubs.
Larry Sumaila disclosed his plans in an interview with the leading Ghanaian website, Ghanasportspa
“My contract ended on 31st May but I still train with the team, I relate with the club, the boys. I had a conversation with Samuel Boadu and he revealed the future plans he is having for me. Also, I have not started spoken to Hearts management. There’s no open contract talks with the management but so far as the season has ended am just hoping and praying that there will be contract talks. I am also in talks with different club. After the contract ended on 31st, I think some clubs noticed and started negotiating with me but am taking it into consideration. I don’t take decision at a go. I take it into prayers ask God to show me what to do before I take it gradually. It is step by step. Am waiting to see what the Lord will do for me and where he show me to go.
“You can stay some place for a long time before God can open the way for you at that place but someone may also leave to shine at a different place or to flop. That’s why am saying I will follow what God will tell me to do.
“Many clubs have approached me to leave and go to a different place and you will shine. I listen to it but I don’t believe you will leave one place to shine at a different place. Am waiting for what God will do.
“Clubs in Ghana, Europe, Asia and some Arabian clubs are having talks with me but I want to exercise patience. I don’t want to do what God dislikes but where he will direct me to go.”
Sumaila, 25, signed a two-year deal with Accra Hearts of Oak in 2019, under the then head coach Kim Grant.
