Richard Zumah has disclosed that he wants to play for Asante Kotoko after he was rejected by Accra Hearts of Oak.

The striker failed to secure a deal with the Phobians despite excelling for them in the GHALCA G-8 pre-season tournament in 2018.

He scored two goals as Accra Hearts of Oak finished second in the competition.

The Accra-based club wanted to sign him but could not meet the financial demands of the former Emmanuel FC striker.

“As we speak now the team I want to play for is [Asante] Kotoko, my focused is on them”, the forward told Atinka FM in an interview today.

He added, “I’ve always said, I can’t betray hearts of oak, but I’ve realized that they don’t want to sign me, I offered myself to them in 2018 they didn’t mind me”.

”I did the same in 2019 when I returned from Iraq, I had a series of meetings with Frederick Moore (managing director) and even told them I need no money. They rejected me."

”So now I want to play for Kotoko, I know I will add something to the team.”

Zuma is currently unattached but is confident of signing for a club before the start of the next football season.
