Hearts defender Larry Sumaila 'adores' role model Amankwa Mireku

Hearts of Oak defender Larry Sumaila has revealed his admiration for former captain and club legend Amankwah Mireku.

The defender admits that the 2005/06 CAF Confederation Cup winner is his idol and wants to emulate the kind of success chalked by the right back during his playing days.

Amankwah Mireku is my idol. Although my style of play is not reminiscent of his but I really adore him. He is a fresh breath of fresh air, a dynamic figure who makes an immediate impact with his spiky personality. I'm not surprised that he excelled as the captain of the the club," he told

“He went through strings of frustrating injuries and difficult times in his career but as soon he makes a return to the pitch, he reminds everyone of his quality. I think he was one of the best in his generation," he added.

Larry joined the Phobians last year before the start of the NC Special competition and has since made his way into the starting line up of coach Edward Nii Odom.
