Joyce Attah, wife of Hearts of Oak goalkeeper Richard Attah has alleged that two top officials of Hearts of Oak she nicknamed “Aki and Pawpaw’ masterminded the sacking of Samuel Boadu from the club.
According to Joyce Attah in an explosive audio, the two unnamed top officials of the club told referee Selorm Yao Bless who was in charge of the 1-1 draw between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko earlier this season to hand red cards to two players of Hearts of Oak.
She added that the reason for that is for Hearts of Oak to lose the game, which would lead to the sacking of Samuel Boadu.
“When the team (Hearts of Oak) traveled to play Kotoko, Ayi (goalkeeper) was not not involved in the team’s warm-up. It was Attah and Alawa (Eric Ofori Antwi) who were in camp. Boadu included Attah in his starting X1 against Kotoko but the officials warned him (Boadu) to change him. He was replaced with Alawa but the officials rejected that one too” Mrs. Attah said in an explosive audio
“So Ayi was not aware that he was going to be in post. You understand! So he hurriedly dressed up for warm up and the game itself.
“Because they wanted Samuel Boadu downfall, they planned to rely on the outcome of the game to engineer his dismissal.
“Is is me! I am the one telling you this. The referee (Serlom Yao Bless) confronted two players and asked them if they had wronged their bosses? and they said No! Then he informed them that these your bosses ‘Aki and Pawpaw’ say I should show these two specifics players the marching off orders.
“I am telling you. Whoever doubts me should come to me. He said these players should be shown the red card so that the lose to force the exit of Samuel Boadu.
“Thankfully, there were no red cards. Attah has not done anything wrong. It was Samuel Boadu had left the club that he informed Attah of the plot against him.”
It remains unclear who ‘Aki and Pawpaw’ are and also why she’s making these revelations. But it is believed to in connection to the treatment her husband has received from the club in recent months.
Richard Attah who played a pivotal role for Hearts of Oak in their 2020/21 Premier League and FA Cup triumph has reportedly left the club after a mutual agreement.
