Former Hearts of Oak National Chapters Committee Public Relations Officer, Mr. Maxwell Asabre says it is unacceptable to sell the club as has been proposed in the club’s floating of shares.The management of Hearts of Oak is set to float shares in a public offer to enable a smooth running of the club.Mr. Asabre says the flotation is an indirect sale of the club and believes it brings into disrepute the status of the club.He told Asempa Sports that instead of the Hearts leadership to concentrate on how they can restore the pride of the club after its poor performances locally and internationally, they are rather focused on selling the club due to their selfish interest.According to him, the flotation of shares will not benefit the club in any way and that those behind it should desist from it.He believes lack of transparency in the management of the club is killing Hearts but as a traditional club, he and his colleagues will not sit for some self centered people to demolish Hearts of Oak.
