Hearts of Oak highly rated midfielder, Samudeen Ibrahim has attributed his below par performance in the just ended Ghana Premier League to injury after he was voted as the worst midfielder in the Happy FM’s Golden Bin Awards.
The silky midfielder was signed by the Premier league giants from King Solomon FC after winning the Most Valuable Player in the 2015 Division One league, and instantly became the toast of the club’s supporters with impressive displays in the latter part of their pre-season and in the first game of the premiership season against New Edubiase United.
He won the Most Valuable Player in that match, but had to substituted in the dying embers of the game with an ankle injury.
However, he failed to repeat his early season form upon his return from a long lay-off, which made supporters of the club to charge on the player for his abysmal outings.
And after being voted as the midfielder to have disappointed most in the season under review, Samudeen said,”I know I’ve disappointed many people who were expecting so much from me and if the fans say i was the worst in my position, i’m okay with that.”
“I started the season very well up until the time i sustained the ankle injury. Ever since i started playing football, i’ll say that was the first time i’d experienced such an injury. It affected me greatly because i believe the time i returned, the season was far gone.”
“I’m really disappointed in myself, but i’m promising all Hearts of fans that next season, they’ll see the real Samudeen they’ve been craving for.
