Great Olympics have taken struggling Ghana Premier League defending champions Hearts of Oak over a delay in payment of the transfer fees of midfielder, Gladson Awako, who switched camps from Great Olympics to League champions, Accra Hearts of Oak.
Great Olympics have tabled a lawsuit against the defending champions for defaulting in the payment of the remainder of Gladson Awako’s transfer fees that was agreed upon by the two Ghana Premier League clubs. Accra Hearts of Oak are accused of not honouring their part of the deal to pay the fee agreed upon by the two clubs
Great Olympics have revealed that the total transfer fee for their former player is GHC100,000 and that was the fee agreed upon by the two clubs but Hearts of Oak have only been able to pay half of the agreed fee.
The transfer of Gladson Awako was not without controversies as he sought to leave the Great Olympics camp in September, 2021. There were rumours of the midfielder suffering from a spiritual and talks of him ready to quit football entirely and the controversies seem to continue even after the transfer has been done and the two teams have agreed a fee.
