Hearts legend Ismael Addo “feels special” to hold Ghana Premier League record

Former Hearts of Oak attacker Ismael Addo “feels special” for holding an enviable record of scoring 22 goals in a Ghana Premier League season.

The Phobian legend became the first player to score 22 times in a League season, chalking that feat during the 2001/02 campaign.

No player has since been able to come close to equaling or beating that record nineteen years after the player left the local scene, a situation which makes the former Ghana U17 star special.

“It makes me feel special because the league was there before I was born and then there has been some records that were set before I came along,” he told TV3 in an interview.

“So having the opportunity to have a record of my own in the Ghana League, that’s something I will always be proud of.”

Addo spent three years with Hearts of Oak before leaving for Europe where he featured for the likes of Bastia, Maccabi Netanya, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Ergotelis and Enosis Neon Paralimni.

Despite his incredible exploits with Hearts of Oak, the 43-year-old could not find a breakthrough with the National team making just nine appearances for the Black Stars.

The 1999 FIFA U17 Golden Boots award winner also played for Indian Club East Bengal.
