Ex-Hearts of Oak star Ishmael Addo does not regret Black Stars struggles

Former Hearts of Oak talisman Ishmael Addo says he has not regret for failing to make a mark in the Black Stars when he had the opportunity.

The striker, who is arguably the best to have played in the Ghana Premier League, revealed he took his chances when he had the call up to the Black Stars but could not compete with the big names in the national team.

“Yes. I think I should’ve but then you know we had these big stars. We are talking about big strikers who were playing in the Black Stars back then were exceptional because we had Augustine Arhinful, all the big names," Addo told Tv3 Sports.

"Actually I had my chances and I took them so I wouldn’t regret anything that went on.

“It was a different playing style because it is a different coach coming in and we had a different coach back at Hearts of Oak so it was something different,” he added.

The striker made only nine appearances for the Black Stars, scoring just a goal despite his goal scoring prowess with Hearts of Oak, which saw him winning multiple league titles and the CAF Champions League.
