Former King Faisal FC player, Eric Gawu has revealed why he joined Accra Hearts of Oak SC from a Kumasi-based club.
According to him, Hearts of Oak presented a better offer than their archrivals, Asante Kotoko.
“There was pressure on my dad for me to come and play for Hearts of Oak from the supporters. So, my dad convinced me to play for Hearts of Oak.
He played a vital role in that move,” Gawu disclosed in an interview on Happy FM.
“I also realized that I had stayed in Kumasi for long. Alhaji Grunsah also convinced me to come to Hearts because the offer was very good, even though Asante Kotoko had also made an offer. My father was in Accra the pressure was too much,” he added.
He became a household name in the Ghana Premier League from his days at King Faisal and quickly became fans favourite at the capital club.
