Hearts Loses Awako

Gladson Awako

Great Olympics Chief Executive Officer Oluboi Commodore says midfielder Gladson Awako remains the club’s player despite striking a deal with Hearts of Oak.

According to him, the Phobians breached the contract after failing to pay the full transfer sum of the player after paying just the first tranche.

The Olympics boss stated that the Wonder club entered into agreement with the Phobians to sign the player by paying the transfer fee in two installments.

He said the first installment was paid on September 13 and the second installment set to be paid on October 2.

The Olympics chief admitted that Hearts paid 50 per cent of the first installment but defaulted and failed to pay the second tranche by October 2.

He said categorically that the agreement stated clearly that should the money not be paid by October 2, Awako’s move to Hearts of Oak will be terminated.

“We had an agreement with Hearts of Oak and they wanted to pay 50 per cent. The first installment was paid on September 13,” he said on Happy FM.

“The second installment was to be paid on October 2. In the agreement, it was said if they fail to pay the money the agreement is nullified or terminated, which was signed by Vincent Sowah Odotei.

“He is currently an Olympics player and must return to us now. Any amount paid is not refundable,” the Olympics boss stated.

Oluboi explained that this agreement was signed because of an experience with Hearts of Oak concerning transfer.

“We were demanding all the amount from Hearts of Oak before we release the player because we knew this would happen.

“From October 2 there is no more agreement with Hearts of Oak. He still has a contract with Great Olympics till October 22, 2021.

“It is in his contract that if he doesn’t go abroad he will sign for Great Olympics,” he added.
