Former Great Olympics captain Gladson Awako has pleaded with Hearts of Oak fans to forgive him for going AWOL.
Awako moved to the Ghanaian champions in August but in a surprising turn of events, the midfielder quit training and stayed home.
He agreed a two-year contract, but after two weeks of training, Awako asked for a short break only for him to return this week.
Awako left camp in September and was reluctant to return amidst reports of spiritual attacks, which he has dismissed.
“At the moment I know the fans are not happy with me. I keep receiving messages from most people. Some people feel I have betrayed them, and some people send me good messages, saying they support me and are looking forward to seeing me on the field. There is a little love there,” Awako told TV3.
He added, “But I’m pleading with them to forgive me. I am back and ready to do everything I can to help the club get where it must be.”
The midfielder is working hard in training and hopes to be in the best shape in order to play for his new club.
