Serbian tactician, Slavko Matic and his lawyer, Cristobal Martell have withdrawn from the court case they filed against Ghanaian giants, Accra Hearts of Oak.
The gaffer in a conversation with ghanasportspage.com offered an update, stating: “My lawyer [Cristobal Martell] prepared everything but I have decided to withdraw due to my relationship with Togbe Afede but we will find a way to solve it because I am busy now with other things and family issues,” the Serbian stated.
Slavko Matic confirmed in a brief chat with ghanasportspage.com weeks ago that he has dragged the Ghanaian club to FIFA over unfair treatment.
The 46-year-old trainer left Ghana on Friday, March 17, 2023, after he was instructed to stay away from the team by Ghana Police.
As previously reported, Matic hired the services of highly reputed lawyer Cristobal Martell, known for collaborating with illustrious clients such as Daniel Alves, Lionel Messi, and businessman Jordi Pujol Ferrusola to deal with the Rainbows. He also demanded around 2 million dollars (Gh¢24,777,680.00) as compensation and other benefits but he has agreed to rescind his decision due to his relationship with the board chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak.
Matic replaced Samuel Boadu in October 2022. He supervised 16 games in the Ghanaian league as head coach since his arrival in Ghana.
The Phobians are yet to appoint a new coach after Slavko Matic’s departure. Coach David Ocloo is currently leading the team as their caretaker.
