Addae joins Rovers

supersport.com can reveal that former Heartland and Dolphins star, Owusu Addae, has joined Ghanaian lower division side, Union Rovers.

The Sunyani based side play their home matches at the Coronation Park.

Addae emerged as one of the best foreign imports in the Nigeria Premier League after stints with Owerri based Heartland and Port-Harcourt side, Dolphins, where he won the NPL during the 2010/2011 season.

“My manager has informed Dolphins about my decision to play in Ghana.

“Dolphins still owe me sign-on fees for the 2011/2012 season and I hope the club will pay soon.

"The 2011 NPL title remains special and the fact that I got a car,” the talented Ghanaian who was nominated in the Best Foreigner Category at the 2012 League Bloggers Awards said to supersport.com.

Addae applauded Dolphins gaffer, Stanley Eguma, during his stint at the Nigerian side.

"Eguma ensured I had a great time at Dolphins. He's a wonderful manager.

"I also remember my good friends, Victor Ezuruike and Osita Echendu," he stated.

supersport.com understands that the highly rated Addae, who has attracted interest from South Africa’s Premier Soccer League side, Bloemfoentein Celtic, shunned offers from top clubs in his native Ghana.

“Top clubs like Berekum Chelsea, Kumasi Ashanti Kotoko and one of my former teams, Berekum Arsenal, made enquiries about me, when they learnt about my presence. However, I don’t want to play for any top side in Ghana,” Addae told supersport.com.

Addae played for Berekum Arsenal and Liberty Professionals before heading for Heartland in Nigeria alongside compatriots Isaac Amponsah and Aziz Ansah.

In 2009, Addae and Ansah helped Heartland to the finals of the Caf Champions League, but lost to TP Mazembe on away goal rule.
