Right-back Fatawu Mohammed says he wouldn’t urge Daniel Afriyie Barnieh to extend his contract. The 30-year-old Hearts player feels Barnieh shouldn’t prolong his stint with the Phobians.
He fell out with Hearts after being deemed surplus to requirements. The veteran defender ripped the FA Cup winners in an interview with Sports Obama TV.
“I will not advise Afriyie to stay at Hearts of Oak. God will even punish me for that. Afriyie is my son, but I will not advise him to stay. God will not even forgive me,” Mohammed said.
“The management doesn’t understand business, or they don’t do business. They have no plans for the players. Truth is bitter.”
Barnieh will become a free agent if the Phobians can’t extend his contract. The 21-year-old has helped the team win the Ghana Premier League and two FA Cups in the previous two and a half years.
After excelling with the Black Satellites and Black Galaxies, his national team standing has risen.
The Hearts forward was on the Black Stars World Cup team. Several continental and European teams, including a Saudi Arabian club, are interested in him.
