Former Accra Hearts of Oak defender Inusah Musa says joining Angolan top flight side, Petro Atletico Luanda, was the best decision after appending his signature to a three-year contract at an undisclosed fee on Friday.

Inusah joined Hearts from Tudu Mighty Jets on a two-year deal which ended last June and all attempts by the club to get him to renew the contract were unsuccessful due to unsatisfactory financial negotiations.

The towering guardsman who took over the captaincy mantle from Thomas Abbey was locked in  contractual disagreement with Hearts for close to three months, refusing to turn up for training unless the club met his demands.

Yesterday, he told the Graphic Sports from his new base at Angola that he was confident of succeeding at his new club so he had no regrets for leaving the Phobians.

“At this point in my career I believe that joining Petro was the best decision and I am glad I made that decision because it is every player’s dream to move forward and not backwards’’, he said over the telephone.

“Petro is not a small club and the offer they gave me is far better than what I was offered at other clubs so I am thankful to Allah for this great opportunity. All I need to do now is to work hard to impress my coaches and my new employers so that I will earn a place in the first team,” he added.

He last captained Hearts of Oak in their 1-0 win over arch rivals Asante Kotoko in their Week 10 fixture of the Ghana Premier League played at the Baba Yara Stadium last April.
