Hearts of Oak’s hopes of luring Ghana international Sulley Muntari for a future with the club have been dealt a blow as the midfielder has professed his love for archrivals Asante Kotoko.
The former Inter and AC Milan man has been unattached since ending a six-month stint with Spanish second division outfit Albacete last year.
He has been heavily linked with Hearts in recent times, having had training spells with the club, and has as well been reported to be considering a move to a club in South Africa.
“I love Kotoko. They tried signing me when l was a young player in Kumasi,” Muntari said in an Instagram Live chat with his fans.
“I would love to retire with them, but l would not rule out Hearts, RTU [Real Tamale United], King Faisal or Liberty Professionals.”
Muntari was on the books of Ghana Premier League side Liberty Professionals before first travelling abroad to join Udinese in 2002
