Hearts of Oak have lost an appeal against a Ghana FA Player Status Committee ruling that they must pay former coach David Duncan GHS 86,500 (US$ 40,000) for wrongfully terminating his contract.
The Appeals Committee threw out Hearts’ case for a reduction in the severance package for the former Ghana U23 coach.
Duncan was dismissed in November last year but Hearts wanted to pay a compensation fee of US$21,000- which was a summation of his three-month salary.
But that was rejected by the coach’s representative who sent the case to the Player Status Committee.
"We are consulting our lawyers and we are going to proceed based on their advise," Hearts of Oak’s spokesperson Muheeb Saeed told allsports.com.gh
"It will all depend on what our lawyers say: of course if they say we have no case then we will have to concede. So we'll just wait for their advice."
