Asante Kotoko urged to stay away from Patrick Razak
Accra Hearts of Oak has issued a warning to Kumasi Asante Kotoko stating emphatically that they have no intention of selling their star man Patrick Razak to the Kumasi based club.
Reports suggest that the Porcupine Warriors have already contacted the camp of Patrick Razak to enquire about the possible transfer of the player from Hearts of Oak.
Legal advisor of the player, Lawyer Francis Polley earlier this week confirmed that news despite highlighting that no official offer has been made yet.
The news has prompted the Phobians to make a press release to address that issue.
In a statement issued by the club, they indicated that they will never sell speedy winger to their sworn rivals and no amount of gold will convince them to change their mind.
They have additionally called on stakeholders as well as fans of the club to remain calm as they settle the issues and tensions surrounding the contract of the player.
They have assured that the player still remains an asset of the Accra based club.
Below is the statement released by the club:
“The Management of Accra Hearts of Oak wishes to remind the general sporting public especially the club’s followers that if Asante Kotoko did contact our player, Patrick Razak, on a possible transfer as claimed by his lawyer, then they will in violation of Article 18.3 of the FIFA Regulations on the Status of Transfer of Players which states that any interested club must first contact the club the player is contracted to before negotiating with the player.
“…We wish to state categorically that if they do, Hearts’ position will be that no amount of gold that Asante Kotoko will offer will make us sell Patrick Razak because it will never happen under the good leadership of CEO, Mark Noonan.”
