Hearts of Oak deny signing Malik Akowuah illegally

Published on: 08 November 2016


Accra Hearts of Oak’s Administration Manager, Hackman Aidoo, has debunked reports claiming his side illegally captured midfielder Malik Akowuah from Medeama SC.

The phobians on Monday evening announced the signing of Malik Akowuah from the Tarkwa-based club but the decision was met with an opposing statement from Mauves, accusing them of using the backdoor in signing the player.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Class FM, Mr Aidoo revealed that the signing of the player was sanctioned by the Chief Executive Officer of Medeama, Moses Armah.

“Maybe there is more to it because here is the case we (Hearts) negotiated with them, they gave us their figure and discussed onward percentages and all that. But because we were not in agreement, we sent someone to Moses Parker to sit down and then agreed on figures and even gave the boy [Malik Akowuah] permission to hold personal talks with us.” “So you agreed on the figure and gave the boy permission for the boy to sit down with us, so, it tells us that once the boy agrees then we have a deal. Now that he has signed, they can say whatever but I think we did not just get up and tell Malik to come sign for Hearts of oak. No” he told Class FM Sports. He further revealed that management of Hearts are already in talks with Medeama to settle the issues over the transfer.
