The Greater Accra Chairman of the National Chapters Committee of Hearts of Oak, Barima Atuahene has slammed board chairman Togbe Afede XIV, saying the board chairman does not have the capabilities to control affairs of the club following the sacking of coach David Duncan.Hearts of Oak released a statement Friday confirming the two parties had reached a mutual agreement to part ways but the leadership of the NCC has warned the board chairman to reinstate coach Duncan or faced their backlash.“We are going to the Hearts secretariat right now. Togbe must explain to us the sacking of the coach. The supporters are ready to run the club by themselves. Togbe doesn’t know how to run Hearts of Oak. Togbe should know that being majority share holder does not mean he can do what he wants. We have the men to pay Togbe his shares in the club so he can leave Hearts now. We are going to lock the secretariat and after that we will cease the team’s bus. We will also head to the Tema stadium and stop the team from playing against Amidaus unless coach Duncan is reinstated,” Barima Atuahene said on Adom FM Sports.Coach Duncan joined the Phobian club in November last year after coach C.K Akunnor was relieved of his duties and in his place David Duncan was appointed the new Head Coach.The former Ashgold coach led Hearts from 14th position to fifth after an impressive run in the second half of the season. The 50-year-old also got Hearts of Oak to a first semi-final appearance in the FA Cup in 13 years. They lost 2-1 to Medeama in the semi-finals of the 2012/13 MTN FA CUP. David Duncan won his first trophy for Accra Hearts of Oak on the 1st July, 2013 when his team beat their season nemesis, Medeama 2-0 to win the 2013 Ghalca President’s Cup.Harry Zakkour ‘shocked’ at Duncan dismissalFormer Hearts of Oak Chairman Harry Zakkour says he was ‘shocked’ to hear the news that Coach David Duncan has been sacked as the Head Coach of Hearts of Oak. “I was shocked to hear the news. “If the coach is doing well and is second on the team, why should he be sacked,?” Zakkour said on Asempa FM’s Sports World.“It is the Chief Executive Officer who should be dealing with these matters but not the board. The board can’t dismiss a coach because is the CEO’s job.” “The board does not have the right to sack a coach without the CEO’s recommendation. In fact I was very sad that Duncan was sacked because even in Europe Arsene Wenger has not won any trophy for some time now but he is still coaching Arsenal. Alex Ferguson also suffered humiliating results for Manchester United but nobody sacked him. I don’t see the point of sacking David Duncan.”Harry Zakkour, under whose chairmanship Hearts won the CAF Champion’s League and the CAF Super Cup, added that he was against the floatation of shares by the club to the Ghanaian investing public.Angry fans storm Hearts secretariat.Angry Hearts of Oak has stormed into the club’s secretariat at Asylum Down in Accra on Saturday morning and interrupted the team’s press conference to address issues surrounding the sack of Head Coach David Duncan.Close to 150 supporters of trooped to the secretariat and fired warning to the management and board of the team to quickly reinstate Coach David Duncan or else they will not allow the press conference to go ahead. A police patrol team suddenly showed up at the club secretariat to calm down the irate fans.
