Video: Samuel Inkoom denies blaming Kotoko chief Nana Yaw Amponsah for intended Hearts of Oak move; See what he said

A story circulating that his expected move to Hearts of Oak is because Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Nana Yaw Amponsah feels too large to summon him has been dismissed as “malicious.”

The free agent former Kotoko defender is frantically looking for a club to help him revive his career in Ghana.

On Tuesday, Inkoom practiced with Hearts of Oak, with rumors stating he is interested in joining the Ghanaian champions.

“Don’t blame me for my planned Hearts move; Kotoko CEO thinks I’m important enough to call.” So Kotoko fans should blame their CEO, not me,” Inkoom is said to have said after training to Onua Sports.

He has been extensively chastised, particularly by Kotoko supporters who value his efforts to the team.

However, Inkoom issued a response on social media debunking the comments.

He stated, “My attention has been called to a news item circulating to the effect that I have blamed the CEO of Asante Kotoko of feeling too large to contact me and that the kotoko supporters should blame him for my intended move to Hearts of Oak.”

“Please dismiss any such report, since I have not provided any media outlet an interview today.”

“Because I merely started training with Hearts of Oak today and have yet to grant any interview with any media source on the issue, I find this report startling and troubling.”

“I urge all to disregard this malicious report.”

The 32-year-old left Ghana in 2009 after helping Asante Kotoko clinch the league title in impressive style.

Inkoom returned to Ghana earlier this year after 13 years in a bid to relaunch his career.

He parted ways with Georgian club Torpedo Kutaisi in January this year and has since been without a club.

Inkoom played for 11 clubs abroad including Swiss giants Basel and Ukraine’s FC Dnipro.

Inkoom was part of the Ghana squad that won the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2009 in Egypt before becoming a Black Stars regular.

He was included in Black Stars squads for the 2010 and 2014 World Cup in South Africa and Brazil respectively.
