Former Hearts of Oak captain, Yaw Amankwah Mireku believes his former employers played role in the demise of the former board member.

Alhaji Hearts passed at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital some weeks ago and in accordance with Islamic traditions, he has since been buried and the final funeral rite was held over the weekend.

According to Mireku, the former board member of the club died because of the poor performance of the club.

“I will say Hearts of Oak played role in Alhaji Hearts’ death,” Mireku told Zylofon FM.

“We all know that Alhaji Hearts has not been feeling well for some time but I am convinced that 10% of his illness was caused by the poor performance of the club.

“A lot of people are suffering because of the way the club is being managed. So the current managers should do something about it,” he added.

After winning the Premier League in 2008, the Phobians have struggled to win it back but ended the 2016/17 season on the 3rd position with 45 points and surprisingly lost the MTN FA Cup finals to their bitterest rivals, Asante Kotoko 3:1 at the Tamale Sports Stadium.

Amankwah Mireku played a key role as the club won the 2000 CAF Champions League and the 2004 CAF Confederation Cup.
