Former Black Stars and 1899 Hoffenheim striker Prince Tagoe has disclosed his readiness to play for Accra Hearts of Oak again before he retires from football.
Tagoe joined the Phobians on loan from Tudu Mighty Jets in 2005 and later became the top scorer of the Ghana Premier League with 18 goals.
He recently returned to Ghana and was training before the 2019/20 league season was suspended due to coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to TV3 Sports, Tagoe revealed he would love to have a second stint with the Capital based club before finally hanging his boots.
“Hearts is my club. I want to pay my respect to them. The current players can learn a few things from me,” he said.
Hearts of Oak have have not won any major silverware since winning the league title in 2009.
Though many have attributed the club’s fail to win trophies recently to poor management, Tagoe, however, claims the club has to properly recruit talents in the coming seasons.
“They should consider dealing with real talents instead of thinking that if a player’s manager is financially okay, they should help push him,” he said.
“The scouting team needs to really up their game because a good player will come but because they came with no manager even if he is good, they will end up picking someone else and leave him.”
He added, “Talent is being overlooked, just look at Charles Taylor’s story. We have to go back to the days of recruiting even at the colts’ level and pick real talents.”
Comparing Hearts of Oak then and now, he continued, “Most of the players who have played for Hearts of Oak loved the team wholeheartedly.”
“Previously, we travel across Africa to win titles but the recent ones find it difficult to do that. It is not because they are not good but they have to play as a team because traditionally, Accra Hearts of Oak is a family.”
