Ex-Hearts of Oak striker opens up on why he turned down a Black Stars call-up
According to Abbey, he was called up to the national team at a time the team boasted of some star players such as Anthony Yeboah, Abedi Pele, Yaw Preko among others thus he didn't see himself getting a chance to play for the team. "Abbey made mention of this in an interview on Happy FM's 'Where Are They' program with Ohene-Bampoe Brenya on Happy 98.9FM,"When I was invited to the Black Stars I decided not to go because of the players there, with Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah. "To play Hearts you must have a strong mentality and also be ready to endure, be everything that will be thrown at you. You need to have the courage and be strong too. During our time we played with our heart but now the players are more focused on the money aspect."
