Former Black Stars midfielder Quincy Owusu-Abeyie has made a return from retirement after three years without active football.


Owusu-Abeyie has reportedly joined Dutch amateur division club SV Robinhood Amsterdam on a two-year deal as they seek to qualify for the professional league.

The report further indicates that the former Arsenal midfielder was persuaded to join SV Robinhood Amsterdam by ex-South Africa international Steven Piernaar who coached the club last season.
