The Ghana FA has ordered Hearts of Oak assistant coach Hamza Obeng to pay Medeama a paltry GH₵ 37,500 compensation for breach of contract in a ruling which has ruffled fathers in Tarkwa on Monday, GHANAsoccernet.com Headquarters can exclusively report.
The Mauve and Yellows were demanding damages in excess GH₵ 90,000 for the "unilateral" termination of his contract.
But the Status Committee has rejected the residual value claim by Medeama, insisting the coach must pay the club a meagre GH₵ 37,500 for breach of contract.
Medeama backed their case with legal justification for financial claims citing multiple adjudication cases from FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
The Tarkwa-based side said the decision by coaches Samuel Boadu and Hamza Obeng are “premature, hasty, arbitrary, unacceptable and above all abuse of office as an employee” and did not find it expedient and prudent to warn or complain to the club before taken the decisions.
The club says the arbitral decisions have caused “irreparable harm” and has had a negative impact on the overall performance of the team.
Medeama also insist the “damage done physically and psychologically to the club” due to the sudden unplanned departure of the two coaches cannot be explained and are now seeking for a “residual value in damages”.
Hamza Obeng quit his role at the club on March 16 but joined his boss at Hearts of Oak eight days later.
