Hearts of Oak are set to incur the wrath of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) after failing to settle compensation owed to Hamza Obeng and Eric Amponsah.
The Phobians were given a 14-day deadline to pay their former coaches 12,000 USD in total for a breach of contract after they were sacked in September 2022 along with Samuel Boadu.
Obeng and Amponsah filed a complaint with the GFA, who ruled that the Ghana Premier League club had to compensate the pair by December 30.
However, Obeng has revealed that the Accra giants failed to honour the ruling after claiming a club administrator contacted him to request other payment options.
“Hearts have still not settled us our monies after the player status committee ruling. The 14-day ultimatum was due on 30th December 2022,” he told Oyerepa FM.
“The Hearts administrator called me to suggest a different payment plan but we asked for us to go by the verdict of the FA status committee.”
Obeng had served as Boadu’s assistant, while Amponsah worked as a goalkeeping coach at the Accra Sports Stadium, with the duo having penned three-year deals in March 2021.
