 Accra Hearts of Oak midfielder Camara Nguessan says his heart bleeds for the current state of Ghana football.

 The tireless holding midfielder believes that the suspension of the Zylofon Ghana Premier League, following the expose by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, on widespread corruption in the game, will hamper the progress of players as they continue to stay at home without active football.

 "It is very sad that this has happened. Ghana is a big country of football in Africa and in the world and footballers in the Ghana league not playing will harm the players and their development. I have tears in the eyes when I see the Ghanaian football in this state," Nguessan told Graphic Sports.

 "Personally, the first round of the league has gone well for me although I started with Hearts of Oak very late. I have been able to catch up and I have taken my training serious. I pray that the championship will resume soon because it worries us."

 The Ivorian player further emphasised that it was his aim to help Hearts finish in the top ranks of the league and called on the Phobian fraternity to give him the needed support.

 "My target for the season is to first help my team to have a good position in the league. The fans should also back me and my teammates for us to achieve our aim."

 The midfielder joined Hearts in the off season but had to wait for over a month until the arrival of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) to make him eligible to play for the Phobians.
