Hearts of Oak have announced the dismissal of midfielder Emmanuel Hayford for lack of commitment and indiscipline.
The offensive midfielder has been accused of malingering and truancy.
But the club insist the decision to terminate his contract has nothing to do with his technical attributes.
A club statement read: “Emmanuel Hayford has been sacked for lack of commitment and indiscipline he has displayed towards the technical team and colleague player since last season, a virtue Accra Hearts of Oak upholds really highly.”
Last season, he played 21 matches in all competitions for the Phobians in the 2013/2014 season and that reduced to 15 in the just ended campaign.
Hayford joined Hearts from Amidaus Professionals but struggled to command regular playing time.
