Former Hearts of Oak captain Amankwah Mireku has criticized Salifu Ibrahim along with the current crop of players, accusing them of prioritizing lavish lifestyles over playing their hearts out for the club.

Amankwa Mireku’s resentment towards the players is due to the club’s poor form, which has lost five of its last six games.

He stated that players come to the club to get rich without showing commitment when they wear the shirt, giving midfielder Ibrahim as an example.

“Players join Hearts of Oak and lose concentration because they want to make money and live unnecessary lifestyles. Salifu Ibrahim is a typical example, was this his performance when he first joined the club? He no longer plays with passion or zeal,” Akoma FM said.

“This is because he has lost sight of why he came to Hearts of Oak and is now enjoying it. He is now making money at Hearts of Oak,” he added.

He also accused the players of engaging in immoral activities instead of remaining grounded and focusing on football.

“Instead of recognizing the difficulty of playing for Hearts of Oak and putting in the extra effort, players just do it anyway. They manage to buy some small cars, line up the girls and that’s it. They’re just kidding around the club,” Mireku continued.

“They need to work hard and let go of their opulent lifestyle.”

Hearts of Oak currently sit just 4 points above the relegation zone with six games left in the season.

They occupy 12th position with 35 points after 28 games. Their last six games include matches against Berekum Chelsea, Aduana Stars, Asante Kotoko, Nations FC, Great Olympics and Bechem United.
