Hearts striker Mahatma Otoo joins Hapoel Tel Aviv

Mahatma Otoo has signed a two-year contract with Hapoel Tel Aviv

Ghana starlet Mahatma Otoo has agreed to join Israeli side Hapoel Tel Aviv for two years in a deal reported to be worth US$ 550,000.

The Hearts of Oak forward scored 10 goals for his local side Hearts of Oak last term.

“I can confirm that I’m leaving for Israel but what I can’t say is whether I will leave before the Under-20 qualifier or after,” the 18-year-old told Ghanasoccernet.com

Otoo was named as the best player in the 2009/10 Ghana Premier League.

Otoo is a member of Ghana’s Under-20 team preparing for the 2011 African Youth Championship qualifier against Namibia on 25 July.

    This guy is a talented striker,infact i have watched him play several times for Hearts Of Oak alongside his strike partner Samuel Affum and i tell you what he is a very good striker.He has the strength,power,technique,can go pass his maker with Chicky ease and can also shoot from long distance as well.He is young has a lot of yrs ahead of him,he is going a future prospect for GH among other players in some few yrs to come if only we can handle such resources very well .But i wonder whether he is really 18 yrs?Hmmmmmm time will surely tell!

    im not his father so i cant tell his real age,but i have my doubt.18years??hmmmm.
    i heard he plays like wayne rooney.good luck bro cuz hapoel will be playing champions league football this year or europa league.wishing u the best of luck.
    ps:wat is wrong with the 550,000$?do u kno the meaning of this amount.if u guy dont kno let me tell u,ali sissoko of olympique lyon was bought by fc porto from sporting braga for 300,000€ and fc porto later sold him for 15 million € to lyon.
    german relegated team vfl bochum just bought nord koreas star striker tea-jong for 250,000€ which is peanuts compared to mahatma otoo’s amonut.
    it pays to start slowly so that u make it big time .

    Ghanaian players are just wasting their talents in the exodus band wagon. Their families always go for money rather than talent.
