Ex-Hearts of Oak star Anthony Annan refuses to rule out Ghana Premier League return


Former Hearts of Oak and Secondi Hasaacas midfielder Anthony Annan has refused to rule out a return to the Ghana Premier League before he hangs his boot.

The holding midfielder joined the Phobians from Hasaacas in 2005 and was a mainstay in the Hearts team before leaving to join Norwegian side, IK Start in 2007.

Annan, 36, who was in attendance during Hearts of Oak’s 1-0 win over rivals Asante Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium says he misses playing in the Ghanaian top-flight and will surely return home before he retires from football.

“I watched the game between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko game recently and I wish I was playing in that game. I miss Ghana football, the fans, the media and the hype around it,” he told Skyy Power FM.

“I don’t know when I am retiring from football but definitely it’s possible I can play in the Ghana Premier League again”

The former Schalke 04 midfielder is currently on the books of Finnish club FC Inter Turku. He made his Black Stars debut on 27 March 2007 in Sweden against Brazil.

He featured at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and four Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.

Annan played 12 matches for Turku in the 2020/21 season.
