Hearts of Oak MD Mark Noonan rues Ghana league delay

Published on: 08 March 2018

Newly appointed Managing Director of Hearts of Oak Mark Noonan has lamented on the delay in the start of the 2017/18 Ghana Premier League.

The Ghana top flight campaign was supposed to begin three weeks ago but was indefinitely postponed after Great Olympics served the nation's football governing body with an injunction letter in a protest against Bechem United for fielding an unqualified player against them last term.

And addressing the media at the unveiling of the club's 13 new players ahead of the campaign, Mark Noonan could hide his disappointment about the unfortunate situation and asked the FA to put measures in the right place to solve the issue amicably.

“I’m very disappointed that that’s the case. It is a situation I have never seen before and the fact that it’s a pretty simple issue. Was the player legal or not and why must it takes court of law to solve that?”, Noonan quizzed.

Noonan who was appointed last week as Hearts CEO was introduced to the media last Wednesday at the World Trade Center.

    Mr Mark Noonan, it takes the law courts over a very simple matter like this because "shithole" people are running football matters in Ghana. Useless GFA.
