Neil Armstrong-Mortagbe, a former Hearts of Oak Managing Director beleives Ghana's economy will boost should Asamoah Gyan and Sulley Muntari return to the Ghana Premier League next season.

Both players have been tipped to return to the local top-flight.

Muntari, a 2010 Champions League is currently clubless following his exit from Spanish lower-tier team Albacete in June 2019, where he signed a six-month contract.

The former AC Milan midfielder was linked with a move to Hearts of Oak and was spotted training with the club several times.

However, in his conversation with his fans on Instagram, Muntari confirmed that he would love to retire at Asante Kotoko but will not rule out a move to Hearts of Oak or RTU.

With Asamoah Gyan, the Black Stars forward has already declared his intension to play for the Porcupine Warriors before he retires from football.

After ending his stay with Indian Super League side, NorthEast United FC, Gyan is on the verge of completing a move to the Kumasi based club.

And according to Mr Mortagbe, Ghana's economy will boost massively should both players return to the local top-flight.

"Asamoah Gyan and Sulley Muntari returning to the local league will serve as a major boost as it has economic and commercial benefits," he told Skyy Power FM.

"Ghana FA can also leverage on the two brands and use it to add value to the league and secure sponsorships et al," he added.

Muntari and Gyan both played in the 2006, 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup respectively.
