Hackman Aidoo, Administrative Manager of Accra Hearts of Oak has revealed that, the club did not sign Gilbert Fiamenyo, because he was deemed to be ageing.
“We thought he was ageing so we wanted to extend his contract for just a year but he insisted on signing two years, so we decided to let him go.
“His performance over the years has come down drastically and we believe giving him a longer contract will not be to our benefit”. Aidoo said in an interview with Starr FM.
When he was reminded about the fact that, the player was only 24 years, the Administrative Manager, said, “we all know the real ages of players in the country. We don’t need to go there.
“The way Fiamenyo plays today is not the way he used to play five-six years ago. He is not as good as he used to be in the past”. He stated in the interview.
The Administrative Manager said, the club is focused on signing young players, developing them for the future adding that they are no more interested in buying players who have outlived their usefulness.
He noted that, the club is focused and will live up to expectation in the coming season.
