Accra Hearts of Oak SC have suspended midfielder Malik Akowuah for gross misconduct towards the technical team in their 1-0 win to Dreams FC in their matchday 1 fixture.
The former Medeama SC has been slapped with an indefinite suspension from the managerial department of the club after reportedly snubbing instructions from the head coach and other technical team members at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Malik Akowuah missed the trip to Anyinase in their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Karela United FC on Sunday and is not expected to return to the squad anytime soon.
Kim Grant handed Afutu and Alhassan starting berths in their painful defeat at the CAM park and will likely keep the pair until his suspended star is reinstalled in the team.
