Moro Abubakar quits football

A recurrent injury has truncated the promising career of former Hearts of Oak skipper Moro Abubakar.
The player is currently said to be based in Norway where he is trying to put body as soul together through working outside the football field.

The 27-year-old cancelled his contract with Accra Hearts of Oak four seasons ago and found greener pastures with Serbian SuperLiga side, FK Donji Srem where he made 19 appearances during the 2014-15 season.

Abubakar who made 84 appearances for the Rainbow club, signed three years contract with the Serbian club but injuries has forced him to abandon his playing career for menial jobs in Norway.

A close source to the player confirmed to Graphic Sports online that his recurrent injury has pushed him out of the pitch to pursue a different career off the field.

“He has stopped playing and he is now working in Norway to enable him get some income to support his family” the source said.

Moro, a workaholic in the heart of the Hearts midfield, became the toast of the fans during his days with the Phobian club and attracted the attention of Black Stars B coach, Maxwell Konadu who invited him to be part of the WAFU Nations Cup team in 2013.

While playing for Hearts, Moro’s stellar performance caught the attention of arch rivals Kotoko who were reported to have made overtures to price him out to the Porcupine Warriors but that effort failed.

He also earned a call up to the Black Stars in 2013 during their friendly game against Libya.
