Hearts of Oak’s newly signed defender, Samuel Inkoom has encouraged Ghanaian professional footballers to come back to their roots to relaunch their career when things seem not to go well.
The former Sekondi Hasaacas player recently signed for Ghana premier league champions, Accra Hearts of Oak on a one year deal.

And speaking to Starr Sports, Inkoom wants players who ply their trades in Europe to come back home when their careers take a nosedive

Is the same Ghana league that gave me the platform so when you are coming back, why do you have to feel shy. I was in Geogia, I just finished my contract in December last year and I am back home and I said I want to play Ghana league. I am also coming to the league to motivate the young ones and encourage them that if they play well, they can also get themselves somewhere” He told Untoldstories TV Gh
