In an interview with Angel FM he has revealed he has gone broke.
“If I tell you I am broke, you won’t believe it. I signed two years contract with Hearts of Oak worth ten million old cedis (now 1000 cedis) but I only got six million (now 600 cedis) out of it,” Harrison told Accra-based radio station Angel 102.9 FM
“Clubs won’t give players money they deserve but will rather use it on something different,” he added.
Meanwhile the ex-player has insisted he never never regrets playing for Hearts of Oak.
In an interview with Kwesi Koomson of Aseda FM, Ga Mantse stated that, “I have no regrets, in fact I am very glad I got the opportunity to play Hearts of Oak.
