Chief Executive Officer of Accra Hearts of Oak, Mark D. Noonan, has rebuffed claims circulating within several social media platforms and media houses that AHOSC has engaged the services of a German coach.
In a short post on Twitter, Mr. Noonan confirmed a productive stakeholders meeting held on Wednesday, and urged supporters of the club not to believe news from media platforms about the club, unless it’s something from official sources within the club. He added that the club had not retained the services of a German coach.
Good morning @HeartsOfOakGH family. I can confirm we hosted a productive stakeholders meeting yesterday. But, do NOT believe "news" circulating on platforms and media UNLESS it comes from OFFICIAL sources. For example, we have NOT hired a "German" coach. Stay tuned here. #AHOSC— Mark D.

Reacting to Mr. Noonan’s tweet, several fans of the club, including Genevieve Quaye of NB Sports, asked Mr. Noonan why fans of the club were being kept in the dark about ongoing developments in the club. She added that the club’s social media platforms have been dysfunctional as of late.
Our social media platforms are not properly functioning, and oh now we need to come to our club's MD twitter account for information wow! Too bad! Know that this kind of news will pop up cuz this is Hearts of Oak as long as their bitterest rivals is in the news for a good course— Genevieve Naa Amerley Bardina Quaye (@NaaBardina) October 4, 2018
Chalpang Abu Mubarik, a self-proclaimed fan of the club, accused the club’s CEO of managing the club as though he were selling roasted corn, while another fan, Harry Elorm, said fans have stayed tuned in for far too long and that fans are not appreciative of the club’s current condition.

The only message we get from u is "stay tune here."
U think we are watching GTV news eh?
The club’s social media page on Twitter and Facebook were, until recently, managed by Anwar U. Larry, who has since left the club for other ventures.
Meanwhile, The Ghana Premier League remains on hold following allegations of corruption against former FA Chairman, Kwesi Nyantakyi, and the Association’s dissolution by the country’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Heart of Oak are scheduled to play lower tier side, Swedru All Blacks, in a friendly match this Sunday.
