Former Chief Executive Officer of Accra Hearts of Oak, Harry Zakour says the side he superintended over in the glory days of the 64 Battalions squad was so good that paying of winning bonuses became a problem for management as the club was on a winning streak.
He joined the club from regional rivals Accra Great Olympics.
According to Harry, Hearts of oak were on a winning streak which made it very difficult to settle their winning bonuses which had to be paid after each game.
Speaking in an interview on Happy FM, he said, We always paid the players on time and salaries were paid on time.
Salaries were ready on every 21st of the month.
It got to a point in time I wanted the team to lose because I couldn’t pay the winning bonus anymore in the league but those days people were watching football.
Zakour also disclosed in the interview that running the rainbow club cost him his business and finances and those monies have not been paid till date.
He was also against the floatation of shares by the club.
which he believes can be attributed to the club’s woes over a decade as they haven’t been able to win the Ghana Premier League title.
