Hearts of Oak board members should react fast to save their title race

Motivation is always key to the every individual for a good output and progress at the workplace. The Phobians has put pressure upon pressure on their board chairman to make sure he delivers. The time has come to also shift the heat on the players to make sure they get the best out from the club. The investment from the Chairman is going waste as there are no trophy to welcome them for almost 11years now. But Togbe Afede XIV single handed decided to increase the winning bonus of the players starting from Aduana Stars game till the rest of the season before the final day. The awardee for the best local sports promotion by the FA, who also doubles as the PRO for the Local Black Stars made it known that Hearts of Oak pays as little as GH¢200 for home wins and GH¢250 for away wins. Their arch rivals Kumasi Asante Kotoko comes and tops all with GH¢500 for home wins and the same amount for away wins.

Hearts (Home)GH¢200 (Away)GH¢250. When every club in the country is on a break with its players staying at home as a precautionary measure against the spread of what has become a global pandemic. While players need all the financial support they can get during this period, it has been uncovered that Hearts of Oak players are not having it easy getting by. Credible information gathered indicates that the players are owed 3 matches winning bonuses as well as their salary for last month. Further checks have revealed the management of Hearts of Oak has not settled the monies owed the players because of the financial hardship presented by the COVID-19. They are working around the clock and expect to pay every player before the new season kicks off.

However, Accra Hearts of Oak want to set the pace by raising the salaries of their players to increase their standard of living, to maintain and attract quality players. Frederick Moore in an interview has said that the bankroller of Accra Hearts of Oak Togbe Afede XIV is working around the clock to ensure players of the club are paid a minimum of $1,000 a month. “One of the first things my chairman said to me among other things was that we should aim to raise the minimum salary in the next few years to a 1000 USD and we are working towards that. “That’s where we want to go. Moore explained that Chairman of the board of directors of the Accra giants Togbe Afede XIV is aiming at raising the salaries of their players in order to keep quality players.

Before the truncated season similar promises went to the players to put in their best and ensure that they make it at the end of the match. When they went to Aduana Stars the battle looks very fearsome and daring to score even in this season they lost to them at Dormaa. The promises started from Mr. Frank Nelson to the majority shareholder to show what he also get under his sleeves to help the players to make it this season with some trophies. The Phobians drew goalless at the same venue when they faced Aduana Stars in the 2019/20 truncated Ghana Premier League. But this time around, the team will have another motivation to go for the win as GH¢10,000 is up for grabs. “Board Member of Hearts of Oak Mr. Frank Nelson Nwokolo has promised the playing body GH¢10,000 aside their winning bonus if they are able to beat Aduana Stars in the season's Opener at Dormaa on Saturday,” Oyerepa posted via Twitter. Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM has reported that Board Member of Accra Hearts of Oak, Mr. Frank Nelson has promised the playing body a cash incentive.
