I felt insulted with the kind of offer Hearts of Oak presented to me-Thomas Abbey

Former Hearts of Oak captain Thomas Abbey says he left the Club because of an unattractive offer he received at the end of his contract.

The midfielder’s departure left several Hearts of Oak fans stunned due to his form in the Ghana Premier League.

Abbey, before leaving the Ghanaian giants ended the season as the second highest scorer after bagging 12 goals in the Ghana Premier League.

Just when many thought the player would be given a contract extension due to his immense contribution at the Club, he left for Egyptian side Ismailia.

According to the former Black Stars B star, he felt insulted with the kind of offer presented to him by the Club, a reason he decided to leave.

“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 in recent times have had contractual issues with players with the latest being Joseph Esso who decided to leave after the Club failed to meet his demands.
