Hearts of Oak have officially lodged an appeal against the decision to pay a hefty $40,000 compensation to sacked coach David Duncan.

The Phobians filed the appeal on Monday in which they are pleading for the ruling to be set aside until the appeal is heard.

The club has a few days to the 14-day deadline issued to pay coach Duncan the compensation for his wrongful dismissal in November.

But the club is determined to fight the case until the decision by the Ghana FA’s Status Committee is reversed.

“I can confirm the appeal has been lodged and we are awaiting a response,” Hearts’ Public Relations Officer Muheeb Saeed said.

“We have asked for a stay of execution – meaning we want the suspension of the enforcement of the original ruling before the appeal is heard.

“We believe the decision is unfair and we will fight it until it is reversed.”
