Olympics to withdraw players from Hearts

Listen to article

Accra, Feb. 11, GNA - Accra Great Olympics have threatened to withdraw their players from Accra Hearts of oak if the Confederations Cup Champions do not redeem their previous indebtedness to the club.

Speaking to the GNA Sports on Thursday, Mr Richard Oblotei Solomon, a lawyer and the immediate past chairman of Olympics said it was sad that Hearts had decided to poach players from Olympics without fulfilling their debt obligations to the Wonder club on earlier transfers.

He said it was morally wrong for Hearts to continue to keep monies due to Olympics after netting huge sums of money from the Confederations Cup matches.

Mr Solomon said under the circumstances, Olympics would have no other alternative than to withdraw their players from Hearts of Oak until the Confederations champions cleared their outstanding bills. Consequently, the Olympics secretariat has written officially to Hearts and GHALCA, stating the position of the club.

Hearts have been using Joe Tagoe and Kwabena Dodzie, players of Great Olympics in the Coca Cola Top Four Competition and Tagoe, indeed won the man of the match award when Hearts played Real Tamale United in Kumasi.

some players three or four years ago. Hearts failed to pay Olympics 40 percent of the foreign transfer fee on Laryea Kingston, amounting to 36 thousand dollars and did not complete the payment of domestic transfer fees in relation to Samuel Monnie, Charles Taylor and Laryea Kingston.
