Hearts of Oak board chairman Togbe Afede XIV has claimed Alhaji Akanbi and Vincent Odotei know all the rules about football and even saved the club from suffering GFA sanctions.
Togbe surprisingly jumped to the defence of the under-siege board members during a meet the-press-encounter on Wednesday in Accra.
Odotei has come under immense heat together with board members Alhaji Akanbi and Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe with some irate fans deflating the car tyres of Odotei on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
However, the Executive Board Chairman has described the two individuals as the rightful persons to help him run the club in line with his vision.
“These people will sit down here negotiating with players from morning till night. They are there during pre-season briefings, defending Hearts of Oak as much as they can. And, between the two of them they know all the rules governing football. They’ve saved us on many occasions from suffering fines through their vigilance. I can continue talking to these people for the whole day. I have enjoyed working with them because they bring the three things I want to see in any colleague worker,” he said.
