Yartey to re-launch career


Former Hearts of Oak midfielder Emmanuel Yartey is considering re-launching his career with an unnamed premiership club very soon.

The once talented midfield kingpin said that his return to active soccer was imminent.

Speaking to the GNA Sports at the Darkuman Cable and Wireless Park on Monday, Yartey said that he had finally decided to return to soccer after some years in the wilderness.

After successfully battling some health problems in that last years, the petit midfielder said that he had fully recovered, setting the tone for the re-launch of his once promising career.

He said that he had been training seriously in that direction, with next season as his immediate target.

"I am still very active and haven't lost any of my skills."

Yartey was however evasive when quizzed about his possible destination, saying that he was still undecided.

Though reports had been gaining currency in the local media that the former Okwawu United and Hearts of Oak midfielder had had some mental health problems, the player rubbished those reports.

The Darkuman-born midfielder, was once touted as a prospect for the senior national team, the Black Stars, but that has remained a delusion.

Yartey, who last played for Hearts of Oak during the 2002/2003 season had previous stints with Okwawu United and Asante Kotoko.
