Ex-Hearts great Mohammed Polo has launched another scathing attack on the club’s supporters, accusing them of plotting black magic ‘juju’ against him during his ill-fated time at the club. Polo has warned the club will continue to struggle if they don’t pacify him for the painful manner they treated him.
This is the latest attack on the club’s supporters after blaming them for their current woes two weeks ago.
The former Ghana international is refusing to get back off the supporters whom he accuses of engaging in spiritual combat against coaches and officials employed by the club.
Hearts are in turmoil following their poor start to the season which sees them languish in the relegation trap net.
The club has amassed only eight points from eight games, leaving their ambition of reclaiming the title in serious doubt.
There is no end in sight over the raging confusion that has rocked the former African champions with fans up in arms with current board chairman Togbe Afede XIV over the state of affairs.
Polo has warned there are dire consequences to follow if the supporters don’t apologise to him.
“Hearts of Oak is suffering because of what the supporters did to me so if they want the team to come back on track, those supporters must come out and confess to the whole world on what they did to me otherwise the problem will persist unabated,” he told Accra-based Happy FM.
“The supporters of Hearts of Oak are the cause of Hearts’ woes. While I was coach of the club, some supporters went to see some deities to perform juju against me so that I will not get the required results and subsequently get fired.
“Those supporters are the reason why I didn’t succeed at the club. After fighting me spiritually, they went to the extent of piling pressure on the Board of Directors of the club to sack me.” he lamented.
The current shambolic form of the club has sparked a wave of anger among their teeming supporters with former National Chapters Committee’ organizer Mohammed Alhassan professing a solution of consulting ‘shrines’ to halt their downward spiral.
