Hearts of Oak have been urged to work towards the return of former player Benjamin Afutu by Bernard Don Borety.
As a result of the termination of his deal with the Egyptian side, Eastern Company, Afutu is without a club.
The midfielder, who served as Hearts of Oak’s lynchpin during their Premier League-winning campaign two seasons ago, declined to sign a contract extension due to offers from outside the country.
“I understand supporters of the club are calling on management to re-sign Benjamin Afutu, he was an exceptional player for the team but he forced himself out of the team. Patrick Razak left the club the same way so people had to get involved on his return to the club,” Don Bortey told Wontumi FM.
“Afutu is a proud Phobian, so if they will welcome him back into the team, they should go ahead and do it. He is back in the country and if he has apologized for any wrongdoing they should forgive him.”
In preparation for the 2022–23 season, Hearts of Oak have begun their pre-season.
