Hearts of Oak have denied the appointment of Board Member Vincent Sowah Odotei as CEO.
Odotei is said to have taken over the top position at the Club in the absence of Fredrick Moore who was reported to have quite the job.
Hearts of Oak indicated Moore was on sick leave after reports claimed he had relinquished the position.
Odotei, who previously held the role as the General Manager for the Club before leaving to pursue his political ambition was spotted at the team’s training grounds together with new Coach Kosta Papic, fueling reports he had taken over as the CEO of the side.
Contrary to those reports, the Rainbow Club have quash the said assertion in a statement.
“The Management of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club wishes to notify the General Public especially the Sporting public that Hon. Vincent Sowah Odotei has not been appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of the Club as speculated by a section of the media,” the statement read.
“We also want to put it on record that the Member of Paliament for the La Dade Kotopon constituency who doubles as a board members has not expressed interest in taking up that responsibility.
“We wish to appeal to all especially phobains to disregard the speculation in the media space and continue to offer their unflinching support as we strive to achieve success in the ongoing 2020/21 football season.”
Hearts of Oak are currently preparing for their League game against Karela United, a game which could see new manager Kosta Papic on the touchline for the side.
