Hearts players were not attacked - Berekum Arsenals president Moro

Berekum Arsenals could only draw 2-2 at home against Hearts

Berekum Arsenals president Alhaji Yakubu Moro says Hearts claims of their players being attacked have been overblown. 

Reports of Hearts players and officials being attacked by irate supporters of the Berekum-based side during their Premier League clash are were-documented in the local media.

Captain Mahatma Otoo was reported to have been manhandled by fans of the home side with Hearts fans warning of a reprisal attacks in the corresponding fixture.

But Arsenals chief Yakubu Moro insists the claims by Hearts have been exaggerated.

“The issue has been exaggerated by officials of Hearts and they must put a stop to it,” Moro said

“ They are just making these baseless allegations as a cover for their poor  form.

“The referee was wrong in awarding that free kick to Hearts which resulted in the goal. But we didn’t complain.

“We’ve lost at home this season. Did you hear our supporters beating anybody?

“We lost to King Faisal here but we went home quietly. So why will Heats be making all the noise about a non-existent issue.

“They should give us a break. We respect them as our big brothers in the game but the kind of things they are saying about our club are untrue and unfortunate.”

Arsenals are likely to be dragged to the disciplinary committee of the Ghana FA to answer charges of improper conduct of their fans.
