Hearts team manager Sabahn Quaye dismisses suggested friction over transfer-listed players

Hearts of Oak’s team manager Sabahn Quaye has dismissed claims the technical team is on a collision course with chairman Togbe Afede XIV over the transfer-listed players.

Striker Ezekiel Tetteh claims the club’s top hierarchy wants him to stay despite being told to look for a new club by new coach Herbert Addo.

Tetteh who was signed six months ago was one of the major casualties of the squad trimming exercise conducted by coach Herbert Addo.

The ex Okwawu United hitman however says he is wanted at the club by officials – suggesting contrasting positions between the coach and the club’s administrative arm headed by Togbe Afede XIV.

But the side’s team manager Sabahn Quaye insists the club’s top hierarchy are in tune with all decisions taken by the technical team.

“First and foremost I don’t think Ezekiel [Tetteh] is being backed by any official including Togbe [Afede XIV] to overrule decisions of the technical team,” he told

“In fact, I personally had a chat with Togbe over such acts prior to my return to the team.

“There is no way Togbe will force his will on the technical team because such a thing doesn’t even exist in the first place.

“None of the club’s officials also will do such a thing. We are here to do a professional work and so far we are happy with the relationship so far.

“It is true we transfer-listed Ezekiel Tetteh upon notice he was carrying an injury which he denied.

“But then we recalled him to do further assessment before a final decision is taken on him but not that someone somewhere is imposing him on us.”

    the little i saw of him, i think he is better than some of the players hearts was using before he was acquired. i don't think it was right to reinstate saban quaye. here is a team manager who failed miserably at the national level. he was hounded out of hearts in the first place and i don't think he even played for hearts. i head his name in an olympic squad in the early 80s. i am not saying a team manager should be an ex player or an ex player of the club but i think hearts have a pool of well educated dedicated ex national team players to manage the team.
