Under-fire Hearts of Oak Managing Director, Gerald Ankrah has defended the club’s decision in parting ways with some key players.

The Phobians who just transferred eight of their players are facing extensive pressure from their fans to sign big-name players in the local scene.

The club shockingly confirmed the sacking of one of their enterprising players Emmanuel Hayford tagging him as an uncommitted and indiscipline player.

The transfer policy of the Phobians has been greeted with massive uproar with many branding the Board and Management of the side as incompetent.

But Managing Director of the club Gerald Ankrah has defended the club’s decision to part ways with those players.

“At the end of last season, a critical look was taken at the team,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com

“Certain criteria were set and some players were put on transfer. We did not just take such decisions but we considered a whole lot of things. We shall do what the fans want for them. They should just be patient,” he added.

Hearts of Oak finished 13th last season and have been frantically putting in efforts to better their performance next season.
