The team manager of Accra Hearts of Oaks Sylvester Nii Saban Quaye has revealed that former coach of the club prevented them from using juju.
The club is back on winning ways following the sack of Kim Grant and subsequent appointment of Edward Nii Odoom.
Speaking on Kumasi based Kessben Fm, Saban Quaye said;
“His (Kim Grant) background frowns at juju so there were lot of things he stopped us from doing,”
“Luck plays a major role in football so if he (Grant) oppose to ways and means you cant do it”
“I had one on one meetings with him on many occasions but he just didn’t buy to my idea so we couldn’t do anything about it”
“Hearts and Kotoko are big teams so once a player is signed the whole family have the perception that he is wealthy therefore the witches and wizard in his family can work to bring him down so as a manager, you have to protect the players against such things. The players are vulnerable therefore they need protection but I couldn’t pass by Grant because he was my boss,”
After spewing all the above, Saban Quaye ironically refuted claims that the current good form of the club is as a result of juju wheh he was quizzed;
“No, it’s a tactical discipline and the player’s mentality to win but I will say luck”
Back to form Hearts of Oaks welcome their bitterest rival Asante Kotoko to the Accra Sports Stadium this Sunday for a week 7 game in the Ghana Premier League season.
