Liberty Professionals have loaned out former Hearts of Oak captain Karim Alhassan to Sudanese giants Al Merreikh.
The centre-back recently returned to the Ghana Premier League and featured for the Scientific Soccer Lads during the 2014/15 season in an attempt to resuscitate his career after failed attempts abroad.
In 2011, Karim unceremoniously left Hearts of Oak in a free agent move to join African giants Zamalek then under veteran coach Hassan Shehata but his expected five-year stay was short-lived due to limited playing time.
The rugged defender left Egypt after a nightmarish experience where he went one full year without competitive action. Karim then immediately secured a deal with Turkish lower tier side Adana Demispor but only made 8 appearances for the side.
He had a short stint with South Africa’s Black Leopards before jumping on another flight to Europe with Serbian side FK Radnički 1923.
Now after quiet a number of impressive outings for Liberty last season, Alhassan has accepted a one-year loan offer to join newly crowned Sudani Premier League champions Al Merreikh. He joins compatriots Augustine Okrah and Francis Coffie at his new club.
