Accra Great Olympics have in a tweet rejected their former skipper and talisman Gladson Awako who was transferred to rivals Hearts of Oak during the window. In a tweet on the clubs Twitter handle, it said”Goods sold are not returnable”.
They in a subtle way rejected the reported decision of Awako to return to the two-time Ghana Premier League champions after transferring to Hearts of Oak at the close of the season and is yet to kick a competitive ball for the side.
Awako has reportedly not featured for the Phobians due to personal reasons which he is trying to sort out. It was reported last week that the player’s management had asked Great Olympics to refund the transfer fee to Hearts of Oak so that the player can terminate the deal with the Rainbow club.
His new club, Hearts of Oak released a statement yesterday to throw more light on the midfielder’s situation. It said, “Our recent signing, Gladson Awako, has experienced some personal difficulties that have prevented him from playing football and starting for Hearts of Oak so far”.
“The club expects him to sort out those difficulties soon, so that he can rejoin his colleagues and resume playing football.”
Prior to that, Awako had told Ghanasoccernet that he is not feeling well which is why he is not seen training with the Phobians.” I have not said I am leaving the club. I have not been training because I have been unwell.” he said.
That soon was followed by his agent, Yussif Chibsah addressed the player’s issue during an interview on Asempa FM. That interview was far from assuring where the future of the former TP Mazembe midfielder lies.
“Hearts of Oak gave Awako permission to hold personal training. We won’t address issues in public. It has nothing to do with financial obligations. Hearts paid everything to the player. It’s likely he may play or may not play for Hearts but we have to meet the club to discuss his future,” Chibsah stated.
With Great Olympics’ latest reaction, it is obvious that the midfielder will not be turning out for the Dade boys next season but will he don the rainbow colours?
