Hearts midfielder Malik Akowuah hands in transfer request following confusion with Nuttall


The box-to-box midfielder wants his contract terminated after falling out of his manager’s plans for the new season

Malik Akowuah has handed in a transfer request to Hearts of Oak ahead of the 2017-18 Ghana Premier League season’s kick off despite having a two-year contract with the club.

The midfielder who joined the Phobians from Medeama, after a wonderful performance in the Caf Confederations Cup in 2016, has grown frustrated at a lack of opportunities at the Accra Sports Stadium as well as constant verbal abuses from coach Frank Nuttall and is subsequently set to depart the club.

“It’s true that I have submitted my transfer request to Hearts of Oak and I want things done amicably before the new seasons kicks off,” Akowuah told Fox FM.

“The coach doesn’t have good relationship with me so I’m not happy to be here any longer. He continues to bring new players from outside to come and play at the expense of me. I won’t play for the club any longer.

“Moreover, he at times assault me verbally and an example was after our defeat to Medeama in the Ghalca G8 pre-season tournament. He even told me that I’ll never have game time under him,” he added.
