Ex-Hearts chairman Zakkour threatens legal action against Togbe Afede over unpaid cash
By Patrick Akoto
Ex-Hearts chairman Harry Zakkour has threatened to take legal action against Togbe Afede over unpaid monies owed him within a month.
Zakkour, nicknamed ‘millennium chairman’, claims he is owed several thousands of dollars and has failed in numerous attempts to retrieve the money.
The famous ex-Hearts boss is furious over allegations of sabotage leveled against and now demanding for his cash from current board chairman Togbe Afede.
“They owe me some money. You see I bought most of the players during my time in office,” Zakkour told Angel FM
“I never declared them for profit because I know Hearts can never pay me. The likes of Bernard White, Ayitey Dormon, Sackey and Osmanu amongst others were bought by me.
“I bought most of them from my own pocket but when they were sold I told them I did not need the money.
“But the last time we travelled to Africa, they borrowed $100,000 from me and that’s the only money I need.
“Now I want my money back. If they don’t give me within one month, I will take Togbe Afede to court not Hearts of Oak.
“The board of directors should know that I will take interest from Togbe Afede.” he fumed.
Zakkour presided over Hearts glorious days when they won the CAF Champions League in 2000.
