Hearts duo face probe for pitch entry delay

The Ghana Football Association is likely to open an investigation into the delays by two Hearts of Oak of players to join the start of their league match at Dwarfs.

Uriah Asante and Mahatma Otoo were prevented by fans of Dwarfs from using the unapproved route to enter the pitch.

Hearts started the game with 9 men after it emerged the enforcer and attacker were nowhere to be found- a situation which led to the delay of the start of the game for fifteen minutes.

There have been accusations and counter-accusation from both teams even though Hearts are yet to state their official position on the unfortunate incident.

This had led to a huge controversy as Hearts' unbeaten record was dented after losing 1-0.

    I think that behaviour exibited by hearts was very wrong for a team like hearts of oak which is hundred years today to do that, and it ruins the image of our league and the FA should do something about it

    I think the FA needs to take a critical look at what transpired at the Robert Mensah sports stadium and apply the necessary sanctions on those two hearts of oak players,because this totally unacceptable for a team like hearts of oak to be behaving this way, whiles celebrating their so-call 100 yrs.This a disgrace to Ghana football and hearts of oak needs to be punished for such a shameful behavior.I don't know why hearts of oak depend so much on superstition?Does it play any role in our modern day football?hmmmmmmmmmm

    Hahaha lol! Juju for you! This is not their first and l belief,it would not be the last. I felt embarrassed when HEARTS came out from dressing room under their club flag when they played against Kotoko. It was amazing to see that in Ghana football. Let us learn to train and specialize on somethings like freekicks etc. Our coaches are not excluded why?. Play football and stop juju and mallam say!

    The fact of the matter is that Hearts of Oak can never change their "wyas and means" ways and i am sure there would only be 7 players on the pitch against kotoko before the rest of their players would later enter the pitch. Its about time the FA and its affiliate body apply the laws to the later by meting out severe punishments to those two Hearts players to serve as deterrent to the Phobia club!
