Chairman of powerful Chapter O supporters group, Kassim Alhassan has descended heavily on Hearts General Manager Neil Armstrong Mortagbe, claiming he will ‘not last’ at the club.
Mortagbe has come under intense criticism since the dismissal of coach David Duncan with allegations he masterminded the exit of the ex-Ashantigold trainer.
The side’s sorry 2-1 defeat at home to Heart of Lions has worsened the already volatile relationship that has developed between Mortagbe and a section of the club’s teeming supporters.
Kassim Alhassan, who is the chief of the club’s most powerful supporters group, has launched a stinging pot shot at Armstrong Mortagbe for sowing seeds of division in the club.
“Neil Armstrong, he has a very big problem. He know me because I no dey fear face. If I want to tell you my piece of mind, I will tell you irrespective of your status. I will tell you, that is me but Neil should be very careful,” he told Accra-based Power FM
“I will say it in his presence because he is bringing a lot of divisions so he should be very careful with that. I don’t hate him; I have worked with him for a long time. I have known him for long time but his way of doing things is very bad.
“I know he will not last at Hearts of Oak though but if he is going to last for some time, then he should be very careful because his way of doing things is highly questionable.
“He is bringing a lot of division within the rank and file of Hearts of Oak especially to supporters. He is a manager so he should be very careful. That is my advice to him.
Hearts have been in turmoil since Duncan was shown the shock exit after leading the side to second on the table, just a point behind Kotoko.
The decision has generated massive rift between a section of the supporters and the current board of directors.
