Thomas Abbey has finally opened up on why he parted ways with Ghana Premier League giants, Hearts of Oak in 2018.

Abbey astonishingly left the club after a brilliant season with Phobians during the 2017/18 season.

He finished the season as the second-highest scorer in the Ghana Premier League scoring 13 goals.

He, however, left the club after the former Ghana Champions failed to meet his contractual terms, forcing him to join Egyptian side Ismaily before moving to Malaysian outfit Perak II.

“I was willing to continue with the Club (Hearts of Oak), because I had played for them for a long time, so I was expecting them to renew my contract,” he said in an interview on the Untold Stories series.

“Usually is a year to the end of your contract, there is a renewal, I had one year left but there weren’t making any attempt to renew.

“I decided to also take a decision, they had already made their mind to release me at the end of the season but I was lucky to secure myself another Club.

“Initially they presented a contract to me but I felt insulted because even my previous contract with them was better than what they presented. So after the season, I decided to leave.”

Hearts of Oak have already parted ways with star man Joseph Esso after failing to meet the player’s demands for a possible contract renewal.
