Ghana premier league side Hearts of Oak have condemned attacks on board member of the club Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe.
This comes in the wake of the former FA chairman’s comment that former players of the Phobians interested in rejoining the club will undergo evaluation.
The statement appeared to have irked some of ex-players of the side with suggesting in a radio interview that football administrator and board member of hearts is archaic and lacking ideas.
Hearts of Oak in a lengthy statement has condemned the actions of its former players demanding they channel the grievances through appropriate channels.
Part of the statement reads, “in the said story, our former player, Charles Taylor was reported to have made very uncomplimentary remarks about one of our revered board members, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe. The choice of words Charles Taylor used against the renowned medical doctor, retired military officer, former diplomat and football administrator cannot be repeated in any write-up. We are amazed that a person of Charles Taylor’s caliber would make the remarks attributed to him.
”It is also unfortunate to have heard another old player of the club, Dan Quaye make similar remarks against Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe. In fact, we expected these players to have known better and therefore appeal to all who have the club at heart to report their grievances through the appropriate channel.
”For the avoidance of doubt, Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe is an important senior member of our Board, who has played leadership roles, not only in Hearts, but in Ghana football over several decades. Indeed, he had served as Chairman of Hearts and the Ghana Football Association in the past.
Meanwhile, Charles Taylor is the second ex-player of the club after Dan Quaye to have aimed a dig at Nyaho-Tamakloe.
Hearts of Oak further reiterated that the club is ready to accept any of its former players but that is subject to thorough assessment.
”We want to emphasize further that should Hearts decide to take back any of our former players, it would be based on thorough assessment and under terms that are mutually beneficial. It is about time young local footballers are given the opportunity to shine but players should never forget the sacrifices club owners make in the provision of the platforms for their development.”
