Hearts chief Mortagbe saddened by fans' reaction to Duncan's dismissal
Hearts of Oak chief Neil Armstrong Mortagbe says he is saddened by the attacks from the supporters following the infamous sacking of coach David Duncan.
The Phobian supporters have gone on the rampage in demanding the immediate reinstatement of the ex AshGold trainer.
Duncan was shown the exit by the club’s board two days towards their Premier League match against Amidaus Professionals.
The decision has however enraged several Hearts fans who believe the 50-year-old is the main reason for the team’s relative rise this season.
The enraged fans have issued threats, insults and many form of attacks to the board chairman Togbe Afede XIV who is perceived to be the mastermind of Duncan’s dismissal.
This development coincides with the club’s 102nd anniversary but Managing Director Mortagbe has refused to savour the moment due to the ‘sad’ state of current events within the club.
“I was very sad speaking to the board chairman on the club’s anniversary,” he told Metro FM.
“This is someone who has invested a huge chunk of his resources into the club. He is also a supporter.
“We can raise issues without any personal attacks but the way some of our supporters have treated our leader, I am shocked, surprised and hurt.
“I was so sad while speaking to him. This is the level we have descended to and it is most unfortunate.”
