“I had a problem with the Goalkeepers trainer at hearts of oak then Jerry Agyei. I see myself as gentle and noble! I don’t want to have a problem with anyone so I just leave when the applauds is loud.
“I was the goalkeeper when Hearts of Oak conceded 5:0 at Sogakope Wafa.
“The players told me to fake an injury after conceding 2:0 in the first half and I told them I would rather concede more goals than to fake injury.”
“With Ben Mensah as our second Goalkeeper. After the game, the goalkeeper’s trainer decided not to give a call up to camp again, ” Akrugu is quoted.
