Issah Mumuni – Indefinite suspension

ACCRA Hearts of Oak midfielder Issah Mumuni has been suspended while the club prepares to take disciplinary action against players indicted in a leaked audio tape.

Mumuni was captured on tape mocking the club’s amisfortunes in the premier league in an explosive leaked audio recording which has rocked the club.

The former Dreams FC youngster was heard lambasting management for failing to honour their obligations and questioned the competence of under-fire coach Herbert Addo.

He lashed out at the club and seemed thrilled with their patchy run in the top-flight this season.

The club’s top hierarchy has been angered by the latest development and have moved quickly to avert a potential player revolt in the wake of their poor performances.

In a related development, under-fire Hearts striker Gilbert Fiamenyo had denied leaking an audio tape which has led to the suspension of young midfielder Issah Mumuni.

Fiamenyo, believed to be a close ally of the club’s majority shareholder, Togbe Afede XIV, has been accused of leaking the tape which captured players mocking the downward turn of the club this season.

But the bulky striker has dismissed the claims, insisting he has no hand in the audio recording circulating in the local media.

“I heard it but I wonder when they said it. Because I left quickly after the game. So I was shocked that this happened,” he told Peace FM.

“I don’t have a hand in it. I didn’t leak anything. I won’t do that for anything.”
