… As Hearts fans chase Matic out of training …ahead of big game tomorrow

Disgruntled sup­porters of Hearts of Oak yesterday reportedly chased out their Serbian coach, Slavko Matic, from the club’s sports complex at Pobiman, in the north-western part of Greater Accra.

The Serbian coach arrived at the training ground, evidently, to pre­pare his boys ahead of tomorrow’s week-20 titanic Ghana Premier League (GPL) clash against sworn rivals – Asante Kotoko, slated for the Accra Sports Stadium.

However, according to reports, the coach got to the Pobiman grounds only to realise that he was not going to be allowed in by the frustrated Hearts supporters who, apparently, were unhappy by the club’s bad patch of form in the ongoing GPL

Tomorrow’s cliff-hanger also serves as a Presidential Cup game – with the winner swaggering away with the maximum points as well as GH¢50,000 cash prize at stake.

Hearts have lost their last two games at the Accra stadium against Aduana Stars and Great Olympics – results that threw the supporters into a fit of rage.

The club now sit in sixth place on 28 points – eight points adrift leaders Aduana Stars.

Ahead of yesterday’s incident, the Public Relations Officer of the club’s National Chapters Commit­tee (NCC), Kobby Jones, called on supporters to storm Pobiman and prevent the coach from gaining access to the team.

The club had, however, earlier urged its supporters to abstain from any vicious act, but the fans took no heed of that directive.

Matic was yesterday spotted at the Police Headquarters in Accra, apparently to file a complaint on the violent behaviour by some supporters of the club to bar him from training.
