The porcupine warriors thrashed the Phobians 3-1 courtesy Saddick Adams's first-half hat-trick that propelled them to a ninth FA Cup triumph at the Ali Mahama Sports Stadium in Tamale.
Thomas Abbey, a former captain of the rainbow boys attributed their defeat to an unpaid three months salary plus seven months bonuses.
But Cobbinah who played with him at the final said the latter is frustrated when responding to Thomas Abbey.
However, in an interview with Don Summer of Angel FM in Kumasi, Winful Cobbinah apologized to his former teammate for his comment but has insisted they were not owed before they played the final against Kotoko.
"Going into that game, Hearts were not owing us. We took the game easy but Kotoko was hungry for success and that is why they scored us" he said.
