Ernest Thompson claims that members of the club have left every financial burden on majority shareholder Togbe Afede

Speaking to Kumasi-based Nhyira FM,the former SSNIT boss lamented why members of the club cannot contribute to help in varied ways.

“Everybody is waiting for Togbe to buy a bus for the team, if the club as a serious entity float shares, will get money and buy a bus.

“Even Pobeman project we need money to have it done and where is the money?

“Hearts of Oak has a weak financial base and that is what stops the team from going for good players, which is bad”

“Anytime, I see Hearts of Oak Bus I feel like crying because I was involved in purchasing that bus. Why should the club be using such a bus at this time?.

“Hearts shouldn’t have been using this bus by now and training on poor pitches”, the former Hearts of Oak board secretary shared.
