Gladson Awako’s agent, Yusif Chibsah has debunked reports that his client is no longer a player of Hearts of Oak.
Great Olympics Chief Executive Officer Oluboi Commodore disclosed in an interview that Hearts of Oak had breached the contract it signed with the club for the transfer of Gladson Awako.
Hearts of Oak were supposed to pay Awako’s transfer fee in two instalments, the first on September 13 and the second to be paid on October 2, 2021, as stated by Oluboi Commodore.
The Phobians paid 50 percent of the transfer fee in the first instalment and per the agreement were supposed to make the other half during the second instalment or have the deal terminated.
Hearts of Oak failed to make payment on the said date and thus have breached their contract with Great Olympics.
Chibsah in an interview has reacted to the reports in the media that his player is no longer a player of Hearts of Oak
“I don’t have details of Olympics’ contract with Hearts of Oak but as far as Olympics transferred the player there is a club to club agreement”
“To the best of my knowledge, Awako is still a player of Hearts of Oak and he has a valid contract. Until Hearts of Oak decides otherwise or the player decides otherwise that contract is valid. Whatever conditions or terms Olympics has to Hearts does not affect Gladson Awako”
“There are rules by which Olympics can demand their money if Hearts of Oak has defaulted. They can take the player to the Player Status Committee. Non-payment of the fee does not nullify Gladson Awako’s move to Hearts of Oak.
“Awako has a contract with Hearts of Oak and only two options can happen here if one of the two parties decide to terminate the contract and then pay the compensation attached”, he added.
