Ali Jarrah has stated that Hearts of Oak treated him with disrespect when he worked as their goalkeeper’s trainer in the 2000’s.
Ali Jarrah on Sunday expressed his frustration on his facebook wall stating that he has been neglected by the society and is as a result heading closer to his grave, which gave a hint of his desire to end up with life.
The former Black Starlets and Satellites shot-stopper accused several stake holders such as ministers, parliamentarians, GFA, former teammates and former club Hearts of Oak of turning their back at him.
However, he has singled out Hearts of Oak this time around by elaborating that they sacked him, after he had helped train their goalkeepers and even refused to pay what was due him.
“I trained Sammy Adjei and Sannie Mohammed, when I was the goalkeeper’s trainer of the club and they all became the best goalkeepers in Ghana, but the management of Hearts of Oak failed to give me the credit for that,” he told Sika FM.
“Instead, I went to check my account one day and it was empty, so I called to ask of my salary and I was told that my legs are not good to deserve the goalkeepers’ trainer of the club.
“Even when Santrofi Acquah, a former player of the club died no Hearts of Oak official was at his funeral.
The sad story of Jarrah is that he got paralyzed in 1993, some few weeks days after securing a contract to ply his trade in Germany.
Ali Jarrah was an established member of the Hearts of Oak team in 1992 and was voted Toyota Most Valuable Player of the Year for his splendid feat that season.
He owns an academy that has been training goalkeepers in the country as a way of giving back to society.
