Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Hearts of Oak, Kwame Opare Addo, has confirmed reports that the club owed Herbert Addo before he passed away, but insists the amount does not exceed ₵3,000.

Legendary coach, Herbert Addo, passed away last Friday, having failed to recover from an illness.

However, in the aftermath of Addo’s death, veteran coach J.E Sarpong accused Hearts of Oak of failing to honour all their financial obligations to the coaching great while he was in charge of the club.

According to Sarpong, Hearts and other Ghanaian clubs owed the late Herbert Addo over ₵50,000 for services he rendered to them.

And the club has now confirmed that they indeed owe the late coach, but not the ₵50,000 that is being speculated.

“[What we owe him] is less than ₵3,000 – at least not more than ₵3,000,” club PRO Opare Addo said in an interview with Class FM.

“Don’t believe whatever you hear, I will not sit on radio and speculate what is not the truth. We had a payment plan with him. And you can call his manager, lawyer Barbados, who is my very good friend, and he will also confirm it to you.

“Why will I sit on radio – a public place – and say I owe somebody ₵1 when I know in my mind that I owe him ₵20? No!”

Addo has also had managerial stints with Kotoko, Inter Allies, Aduana Stars and Ashanti Gold, winning a total of five league titles in a career that spanned almost three decades.
