Hearts of Oak head coach Samuel Boadu has debunked reports that midfielder Gladson Awako has informed the hierarchy of the club to terminate his contract after less than a month at the club.
Earlier reports indicated that Gladson Awako, who hadn’t trained with Hearts of Oak for more than a week now has informed the club’s hierarchy that he cannot play for the club and wants his contract terminated.
Per the reports, the player has divulged that he has been having nightmares since he joined Hearts of Oak and believes the worst could happen to him should he play for the club.
The reports further indicated that the representatives of Awako have asked Great Olympics to refund the reported $15,000 paid to them by Hearts of Oak as transfer fee for his services in order for his contract with the Premier League champions to be terminated.
Reacting to the reports, Samuel Boadu in an interview with Happy FM in Accra on Monday morning debunked those reports, saying the 30-year-old midfielder has only asked for few days off because of medical reasons.
“Awako isn’t part of the team for sometime now due to sickness, he has seek permission to go for treatment and going forward, we’re hoping to see him back to the team soon in the upcoming games”
“As a technical man, I don’t know where that news is coming from that Awako has quit Accra Hearts of Oak”
Meanwhile, Awako-less Hearts of Oak defeated Guinean side Cl Kamsar in the CAF Champions League Preliminary round game on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium to advance to the next stage where they will meet Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco.
