The striker says he was not happy at a point with the treatment he received from the Ogya fans during his two-year stay

Former Aduana Stars striker Nathaniel Asamoah has slammed the behaviour of the club's supporters towards him during his two-year stint, claiming "he was indirectly pushed out" as a result.

The 28-year-old rejected an offer to extend his contract in June and joined Armenian side FC Banants while the Ghana Premier League champions were participating in the Caf Confederation Cup, with only two strikers.

The decision led to a backlash by a section of the fans but Asamoah insists he was right to take that decision to save his career.

“I left Aduana because my love for the club was dying each day following the treatment players were subjected to by some of the supporters," Asamoah told Footballmadeinghana.

“There were no more support from the fans. Whenever I scored a goal and helped the team to win games, they supported us but whenever the results were bad, the support died prematurely.

"At times, they were disrespectful and were also abusing us verbally. I cannot say more about them but I just lost the love I had for the club and had to move on.

"I was determined to achieve bigger things with the them after the Ghana Premie League success but it got to a time the supporters' behaviour was not acceptable anymore so I had to leave to save the situation,” he added.

Asamoah has also had stints with Asante Kotoko, Medeama and Raja Casablanca. He boasts of two international caps with Ghana since making his debut in 2015 against Madagascar.
