Ghanaian giants Accra Hearts of Oak have fired a warning to the CEO of arch-rivals Kotoko, Dr K.K. Sarpong, to stay away from striker Mahatma Otoo whose contract will expire in June.
Aziz Haruna Futah a member of the management team of the Accra-based side, says Hearts are not happy about Dr Sarpong’s dealings with the goal poacher in recent times.
The Kotoko chief was reported to have started talks with Mahatma for a possible switch to Sunderland in the English Premiership.
Though no concrete deal had been reached so far, reports suggested the Hearts striker looked enthused about the offer.
Aziz said the Kotoko boss had no justification to deal with Hearts players without the consent of the club.
“Dr Sarpong should not interfere in matters concerning Hearts,” he warned on radio in Kumasi.
Aziz asked Dr Sarpong whether he had finished selling Kotoko players, to warrant turning his attention on Hearts players.
The departure of Otoo will weaken Hearts to the advantage of Kotoko as the striker is seen as the most important player in the Phobians’ set-up.
