Sacked Hearts coach David Duncan denies disrespecting board chairman

Former Hearts of Oak coach David Duncan has spoken for the first time since his shock exit and denied he was insubordinate to the club’s board chairman Togbe Afede XIV.

The tough-talking trainer had his contract terminated a day after a board meeting early last month.

It was speculated that the former Ghana U23 head coach was disrespectful to the board.

But Duncan has squashed all those reports saying he did nothing to merit the sack.

“In all our deliberations and meetings, there has never been a time when we have exchanged words,” Duncan said at the press conference organized by a section of Hearts fans to honour him.

“When I find that he is getting worked up, I keep quiet and that is my strategy for resolving issues.

“There has any disrespectful gesture or untoward gesture or word from me. There were times he would tell me to do something.

“I would say nothing at the time, but if I do not have the conviction, I would not do it.

“If you are telling me to do something and I don’t believe in it, trust me I would not do it, but I will not exchange words.

“So that was what I did and no one can accuse me of being disrespectful towards the Board Chairman.”

Duncan was appointed in November, 2012 and took charge of 33 league matches.

He won 21 of those matches, lost seven and drew five to leave them in third place on the table this season.

Duncan led the club to win the 2013 GHALCA President Cup.
