Accra Hearts of Oak midfielder, Gladson Awako has lauded the fan base of the Phobians after joining the club.

The skillful and pacy midfielder joined the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League champions from Great Olympics on a two-year deal.

The Phobians paid a compensation of about $15,000 for Awako who scored seven goals last season for the Wonder Club.

Awako after joining the club described the Accra Hearts of Oak fans as the most receptive in his entire football career.

“I swear I didn’t expect this. From my social media handles, everywhere they were on me – my inboxes, they came messaging me. They were so happy and that alone makes me feel so welcomed," he told Joy Sports.

They kept asking me to change my profile. But I love that, I love the passion coming from the supporters as well.

"I believe things will be fine, with the way they want the best for the club, and we’ll also make sure that we’ll give them the best,” the 30-year-old added.

The former CAF Champions League, Confederation, and Super cup winner will be expected to help the Phobians as they return to the continental stage after a six-year of absence against Guinea’s Industriel De Kamsar this month.
