Former Hearts of Oak CF Kwame Kizito has revealed his reason for leaving Libyan club, Al Ittihad Tripoli despite winning the Libyan league title with them.
Kwame Kizito, who also played for the Black Stars B team in 2017, featured for the phobians in the Ghana Premier League some years ago.
It was at the Black Stars B that he got his breakthrough move when after a splendid performance at the WAFU tournament held in Ghana in 2017, he got his big money move to Libya.
However, after just one season, he called it quit citing the tension and civil unrest in the north African country.
Speaking in an interview, Kizito said,
“Libya is a very difficult country. It is not safe when you play football there. When I went there they said it was quiet but when I was there it was very difficult,” the 22-year-old said.
”I played there for a season and they offered me an extension. I couldn’t play there because it’s not safe.
”I was only there for one season. I said no to them. Now I think they don’t even play football because it is war in Libya”
Kizito is one of many footballers who began their career at the Glolamp academy under the tutilage of Black Stars legend, Nii Ordartey Lamptey.
