Former Hearts of Oak midfielder Samudeen Ibrahim has casually dismissed Thomas Abbey's revelation about the cause of the club's 2017 FA Cup defeat to bitterest adversaries Asante Kotoko.
Abbey, who captained the Accra-based giants in the final, revealed that they had gone three months without salary and seven match winning bonuses arrears prior to the final.
However, Samudeen has been quick to debunk Abbey's claims in a subtle shot on social media
The midfielder scribbled on his official Facebook timeline that Abbey is tarnishing the image of his former teammates that played in the match.
"I see a single player trying to tarnish the image of all his colleagues with something they know nothing about..... Painful World" Samudeen wrote.
