Hearts of Oak coach Mohammed Polo has slammed the door on a possible return of Bernard Dong-Bortey to the club.

The Ghana winger had declared his desire to play for the Phobians once more again before retiring from football.

The 31-year-old spent nine glorious years with Hearts from 2001 and was an integral member in their famous CAF Confederations Cup triumph over rivals Asante Kotoko in 2002.

The ex Ghana youth star haven played for Aduana Stars and Song Lam Nghe An in the past three years is now seeking a return to the club he made his name.

But the club’s new coach is focused on bringing through budding talents rather than favouring the return of old horses.

“We don’t need Don Bortey now. I have a mission and that is to prepare a young team for the future,” Polo said.

“We are looking at grooming the younger ones for a successful Hearts future and I don’t think Don Bortey falls within this bracket.

“He could be playing well wherever he is but we currently don’t need him. This is not to say that he is not a good player, far from that.”
