Management of Hearts of Oak SC have warned Kumasi Asante Kotoko to stay away from their player Patrick Razak, although lawyers of Patrick Razak confirmed that the player was contacted directly by Kotoko Management for talks.
According to Hearts of Oak, no amount of gold offered by Kotoko will make them sell PR17 to them, their fiercest rivals.
In the Press Statement, Hearts of Oak stated that if what Patrick Razak’s lawyers said is anything to go by, then Kotoko have violated Article 18.3 of FIFA’s Regulations on the Status of Transfer of Players which stated that the interested club must first contact the club the player is under contract with (Hearts of Oak) before negotiating with the player.
The Statement was signed by Kwame Opare Addo, Communications Manager at the club.
