thumbnail Hello,

The Phobian believes the honour of becoming the top scorer in the Ghana Premier League will spur him on to do more next term, describing the feat as historic

Accra Hearts of Oak striker Mahatma Otoo has expressed his excitement at winning the goal king accolade in the just ended Ghana Premier League.

The Hearts captain scored 20 goals in the 2012-13 season - one short of Emmanuel Baffour’s haul last season.

Otoo was also two goals short of a 12-year record of 22 goals set by former Hearts of Oak striker Ishmael Addo in the 2000-01 season for the club.

The Phobian said the feat will urge him on for greater achievements come next term.

“When the league was about to start my target was to help Hearts of Oak win the league and anything after that will come as a bonus, but things didn't turn out that way,” Otoo pointed out to Goal Ghana.

“We couldn't win any title this season, but becoming the top scorer in the league excites me and want to thank God for that.”

He added: “Accra Hearts of Oak is a great club of tradition and to join the likes of Ishmael Addo, Don Bortey, Charles Taylor who got the goal king accolade with the club and enjoyed success with Hearts is great.”

“This is really something special for me and I feel very honoured for my name to be part of the history books of such a great club,”  an excited Otoo noted.
