Hearts of Oak defender Philip Boampong says he is ‘revitalized’ for next season after recovering fully from an injury.

The strong centre-back’s season was cut short after he ruptured his right wrist ligaments during a Premier League game.

He underwent a successful operation in Accra and has since returned to full scale training without any problems.

"I see I am doing well. I am eager to return to play in the first team,” the former Berekum Arsenal player said.

“Every day is like a final for me. It was a major injury but thankfully it's all over, and I am back playing again.

"It has been long in coming. The stakes are on me now to play to catch the eye of the coach.

“That is most important to every player, and I want to do exactly that.

“He is looking for certain qualities and once I want to be back, then, I have to work hard in meeting his qualities,”

Boampong was member of Ghana’s Under-20 side that won the FIFA Under-20 World Championship in Egypt.

He is the younger brother of former Hearts defender Dan Coleman.
