Former Accra Hearts of Oak board Chairman, Harry Zakkour has asked former club player and coach, Mohammed ‘Ahmed’ Polo to shut up and concentrate on maintaining his football academy than chastising the club for his hardship in life.
In a poll been conducted by an Accra based radio station, Kotoko fans have been praised to show much gratitude to their current and past players than arch-rivals Hearts of Oak.
Former defender of the club, Agyemang Duah had said among his old clubs Kotoko is the only team to have come to his aid as he battles sickness and Mohammed Ahmed ‘Polo’ added his voice to the debate claiming should he have the opportunity to play in the next world, he will never play for former club Hearts of Oak because they are ungrateful.
Speaking in an interview with Boss fm, Polo said, “Look at how I’m suffering. Kotoko supporters are very good that is why almost all the players who played for the team are progressing in life. Look at Maxwell Konadu and others. In fact, I cannot say I’m the best coach in Ghana but for as a player I don’t think anyone comes near me. It’s very painful.
Harry Zakkour who led Hearts to continental dominance in the CAF champions league in 2000 and CAF confederation cup success in 2004 has caved in heavily on the former national player, Polo asking him to question himself why he failed than the club for his failure in life.
“Polo is not normally he’s going off his head, what has he done for Accra Hearts of Oak. He’s done nothing for Hearts his money is all from the oil business instead of insulting the club, he should be glad Hearts made him who he is today,” he told Boss fm.
“Polo has no certificate as coach no wonder he messed the team during Bright Akwetey and the late Sawyerr’s time as board directors and that prompted his sack. Polo is losing it mentally and I think he needs maintenance – if you messed your life up how do you blame the club?, he added.
