New Hearts of Oak Managing Director (MD), Frederick Moore has commended fans of the club for exhibiting discipline in all the matches they have played in the ongoing Normalization Committee (NC) Special Competition.
The competition has seen a lot of violence and hooliganism at some match venues following its commencement in late March. These acts have seen people pulling guns, throwing stones and even to the extent of beating up referees.
As the football fraternity marked the 18 years anniversary of the May 9 disaster that occurred in 2001 and ended up claiming 127 lives, Mr. Frederick Moore has shared that he is happy fans of Phobia have not been engaged in any act of violence since the start of the competition.
“So far all the places that we have played and the games that we have played, some we have played very very well and some we have played good and some we haven’t played so well and we have not had any incidence. By the Grace of God, Inshallah we will not have any problems at Accra Hearts of Oak”, the MD said.
Meanwhile, head coach for the club, Kim Grant who was also at the event today has expressed his condolence to the family of the May 9 victims. He insists that everyone must remember that day and ensure nothing of that sort happens again.
“Condolences to the family and everything. It is great that we are remembering this event. Everybody should remember this disaster but at the moment it is something that has to happen every year to make sure that such disasters never happen again”, the gaffer indicated.
