 Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe accuses Ernest Thompson of inciting fans against management

A board member of Accra Hearts of Oak, Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, is livid over comments by former Board Secretary, Ernest Thompson, which he said could incite the club's supporter base against the management.


He said as a former director of the club, Mr Thompson ought to be measured in his statements rather than making pronouncements that sought to pit the fans against the club’s management.

Last Thursday, the Daily Graphic carried a story in which Mr Thompson backed a decision by the Hearts supporters to physically prevent the club’s head coach, Slavko Matic, from conducting the team’s training two days ahead of their top league fixture against Asante Kotoko in Accra and subsequently asked the coach to stay away from the team.

In supporting the action against the coach, Mr Thompson admonished the Hearts management and the Board to give consideration to grievances by the supporters, who are the real owners of the club, as a way of preventing such agitations from exploding and resulting in a possible takeover of the club in the future.

In Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe’s opinion, the former board secretary’s comments were unfortunate and suggested he did not have the club at heart.
“His statement shows clearly that he has no good intensions for Accra Hearts of Oak and this is unfortunate particularly when he has once been a member of management,” he told the Daily Graphic last Sunday. 

Despite backing the action to restrain Coach Matic from training the team, the Hearts director said the aggrieved supporters used an inappropriate channel in their bid to get their grievances resolved.

He advised that instead of inciting fans and making unpleasant comments about the club, Mr Thompson should rather channel that energy into mobilising the supporters to buy majority shares in the club since it was a limited liability company.

“As a limited liability, the club is in the hands of the majority shareholder and until any other member of the club, or a group of people in the club buys the biggest shares and take over the club, they need to respect and appreciate the effort of the current leadership.

“I'd rather prefer that those who want to run the club from afar to quickly organise themselves and buy the largest share to enable them have a say in the club”.

Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe said Hearts was undergoing phases of development under the leadership of the Board Chairman, Togbe Afede XIV, who, as the majority shareholder, had invested so much to improve facilities and structures of the club.
