Hearts of Oak striker Abednego Tetteh says he didn't join the club for personal glory.

The 29-year-old joined the Phobians in the second transfer window ahead of league resumption.

Tetteh is yet to make his debut for the club following the suspension of all football activities in the country due to coronavirus outbreak.

According to the former Al Hilal striker, he is hungrier than the club in regards to winning a trophy since 2009.

"First of all, I am a supporter of Hearts of Oak, I was born a fan of the club and by God’s grace I have joined them," he told

"I didn’t join Hearts for personal glory. As a player, you must be a team player, so that the team that is paying your salaries, reap the benefits.

He added, "I know Hearts of Oak haven’t won a trophy in the last ten years, so as a fan, I’m hungrier than the club in regards to winning a trophy. If not we win the league, we win the FA Cup."

"So that’s my first priority because Hearts are still in the two competitions.

"I will be more satisfied if Hearts win a trophy because Hearts did not buy me to win the goal king, they bought me to come and help win a cup.

Tetteh has previously played for Becheem United and Sudanese side Al Hilal.
