The Ghana footballer Gladson Awako has parted company with Accra Hearts of Oak, according to the chief executive officer of Accra Great Olympics, Oluboi Commodore.
For several weeks, Awako’s move to the League champions has been in the news, with some suggesting he wasn’t keen on playing for the side for personal reasons.
But Oluboi Commodore, Awako’s former boss, has revealed that the player’s unwillingness to honour the contract is a result of Hearts of Oak’s failure to honour the agreement.
“We had an agreement with Hearts of Oak and they wanted to pay 50%. The first instalment was paid on 13 September.
“The second instalment was to be paid on 2 October. In the agreement, it was said if they fail to pay the money the agreement is nullified or terminated, which was signed by Vincent Sowah Odotei.
“He is currently an Olympics player and must return to us now. Any amount paid is not refundable.”
Oluboi explained that this agreement was signed because of an experience with Hearts of Oak concerning the transfer.
“We were demanding all the amount from Hearts of Oak before we release the player because we knew this would happen.
“From 2 October there is no more agreement with Hearts of Oak. He still has a contract with Great Olympics till 22 October.
“It is in his contract that if he doesn’t go abroad he will sign for Olympics.”
