Hearts of Oak have stated that Gladson Awako missed the win over CI Kamsar because of personal difficulties and has been excused from the team.
Awako was expected to make his competitive debut in the match on Sunday, but he was not included in the squad that won 2-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
“Our recent signing, Gladson Awako has experienced some personal difficulties that have prevented him from playing football and starting for Hearts of Oak so far.
“The club expects him to sort out those difficulties soon so that he can rejoin his colleagues and resume playing football,” a statement by the club read.
The statement comes after Awako’s agent Yusif Chibsah said the midfielder may part ways with Hearts of Oak less than a month after agreeing on a two-year deal.
“Hearts of Oak gave Awako permission to hold personal training. We won’t address issues in public. It has nothing to do with financial obligations. Hearts paid everything to the player.
“It’s likely he may play or may not play for Hearts but we have to meet the club to discuss his future,” Yusif Chibsah told Asempa FM.
Awako scored seven goals and contributed six assists for his former club Great Olympics last season.
