Medeama striker Kabiru Moro has apologized for his tackle on Emmanuel Hayford which will leave the Hearts of Oak striker injured for some time to come.

Hayford is reported to have suffered a dislocated jaw after emerging worse off in an aerial challenge with Moro during Hearts’ 2-1 loss to Medeama on Wednesday.

The Hearts striker has since taken a scan on the injury and will know the results later in the day on Friday.

Many fear the latest injury to Hayford will keep him out for a considerable amount of time while compiling Hearts’ injury woes.

Some irate Phobians fans have threatened to deal with Kabiru Moro in the spiritual realm for injuring their striker.

But the remorseful Medeama hitman has issued a grovelling apology to Hayford and says he will personally place a call to wish him a speedy recovery.

“I want to say sorry to the player [Emmauel Hayford] for the tackle on him. It was nothing malicious but it’s just football,” he told Metro FM.

“I didn’t go in to deliberately hurt the player as people are making it look like.

“I was determined to help my side win the game and I am sure the Hearts fans will acknowledge my efforts if I was playing for them.

“I wish the player a speedy recovery and that I am very sorry that things turned out this way. It was purely an accident.

“I will look for the boy’s number and call him to personally say sorry to him.”

    Awwww!! Am really touched with this remorseful gesture from Moro, initially I was really furious with him buh now that he's shown remorse by apologizing in such a polite manner I will give him the benefit of the doubt. I hope Hayford recovers in time and help the team cuz he's undoubtedly one of the best in the domestic league.

    This boy is smarter, wise, intelligent and human than all hearts fans who are issuing hollow threats. Boy continue to play for Hayford.He is not your enemy and I hope you will not become his enemy as some stupid hearts are trying to make it seem. Good job on your apology and your heart-felt care for the boy.
