Hearts of Oak winger, Bernard Arthur has revealed that he is leaving the club because he feels disrespected.
The former poster boy of Dansoman-based Liberty Professionals secured a move to join the Phobians in 2019 on a free transfer to boost their squad ahead of the start of the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season.
Since the campaign commenced, he has struggled for playing time and has only made 4 appearances [often as a second-half substitute], scoring 1 goal in the process.
Bernard Arthur has described his state at the club as disrespectful for a player of his caliber and has hence confirmed that he has handed in a transfer request.
Revealing the motive behind making that move in an interview with Kumasi FM, he said: “I think it’s a disrespect. I’m a whole brand of myself who people look up to in the coastal areas and Dansoman.
“People keep asking why I’m on the bench but let me emphasize that being on the Hearts bench has nothing to do with my performance”.
Arthur continued, “No matter who you are as a player, you will be rusty if you are always on the bench.
“I’m a player who likes challenges, I came to Hearts of Oak because of Kim Grant. Everything backslid when he left and it turned into frustrations”.
With Great Olympics sitting 12th on the Ghana Premier League table, they hope the acquisition of Bernard Arthur will give them a squad boost in the quest to remain in the top-flight at the end of the season.
