Yusif Chibsah, agent of Gladson Awako has clarified reports that his agent is no longer with Accra Hearts of Oak.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Great Olympics, Oluboi Commodore in an interview with Happy FM disclosed that Gladson Awako is no more a Hearts of Oak player following the Phobians failure to abide by the agreement to sign the midfielder.
According to the outspoken CEO, Hearts of Oak agreed to pay Gladson Awako’s transfer fee in two installments. The first installment was expected on September 13th and the second on October 2nd. However, the Phobians failed to go by the agreement, nullifying the initial agreement.
However, Yusif Chibsah, who happens to be the agent of the player has debunked those claims, insisting that Awako is still an Hearts of Oak player.
“I don’t have details of Olympics’ contract with Hearts of Oak but as far as Olympics transferred the player there is a club to club agreement”, he told Ohene-Bampoe Brenya on Happy Sports on Happy 98.9FM.
“To the best of my knowledge Awako is still a player of Hearts of Oak and he has a valid contract. Until Hearts of Oak decides otherwise or the player decides otherwise that contract is valid. Whatever conditions or terms Olympics has with Hearts does not affect Gladson Awako”
“They are rules by which Olympics can demand their money if Hearts of Oak as defaulted. They can take the player to the Player Status Committee. Non-payment of the fee does not nullify Gladson Awako’s move to Hearts of Oak.
“Awako has a contract with Hearts of Oak and only two options can happen here if one of the two parties decide to terminate the contract and then pay the compensation attached”, he added.
Awako, who joined Hearts of Oak in August and hasn’t trained with the club for weeks now due to personal problems is expected to resume training next week as the Phobians continue preparations for their CAF Champions League game against Wydad Athletic Club.
