Management of Accra Hearts of Oak has denied media reports that the team was locked out of the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday.
Reports suggested that the team together with it’s Scottish trainer Frank Nuttal were denied access to the field for training due to lack of payment for the use of the facility.
But in a bizarre turn of events, Public Relations Officer of the club, Kwame Opare Addo, explained that the team was at the stadium for a photo shoot with media rights holder of the Ghana Premier League Startimes and has described the reports as “immature journalism.”
“I think it will be irresponsible on anyone’s part to say we have been sacked or locked out of the Accra Sports Stadium. That is not mature journalism. People should sometimes put some decency in their reports. We were at the stadium today to have a photo shoot with Startimes, then after that we trained at the same venue. I believe someone spotted us when we were having the photo shoot and decide to report this false information, and it is an immature way of reporting,” he added.
The club also took to social media platform, Twitter to urge fans to disregard the media reports.
Hearts is preparing for its MTN FA Cup round of 16 clash against Young Wise slated for this weekend in Kasoa in the Central Region.
