Phobian’s board member shares his thoughts on their rewards for winning the Premier League and FA Cup 2020-21
Hearts of Oak board member Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe is unhappy with the low-quality medals given to the club’s players for winning the Ghana Premier League and FA Cup.
The Phobians sealed a double last season, beating arch-rivals Asante Kotoko to the league title before continuing to stand for Ashanti Gold on penalties in the final of the cup competition.
In the midst of the celebration, there were some concerns from some sides about the quality of the medals presented by the Ghana Football Association to the winning players.
“We as a club have not had any complaints or said anything at all, but as management the FA has been there for years – over 60 years now and there has been progress all the time,” said Nyaho -Tamakloe, a former president of the GFA, told Joy FM.
“They are there now and they see that the best is being done and I do not think there is a need for anyone to put pressure on them to improve their position and the club’s positions, because this kind of third class cup is unacceptable now . Look at the kind of medals the boys had – it’s unacceptable
“So I strongly believe that their own leadership should examine it and know that the word is changing. Everyone is now well-informed, and television is everywhere in the world. People are watching, especially what is happening in Ghana here as we are a football country and they should improve these things.
“They have the money there, so I can not see what their problem is. The kind of third class cups and parties they gave to the boys, I think it’s time they stopped it and get us something up to world standards. ”
Hearts finished four points clear at the top of the table to win the Premier League, the title their first since last conquering the country in 2009. It was also their 20th league triumph in history, three fewer than Kotoko, the most successful club in the top flight. history.
In the FA Cup final, Hearts beat Ashanti Gold 8-7 on penalties to win the title.
