Board Member of Accra Hearts of Oak, Frank Nelson has confirmed they have not offered contract extension to their captain Reuben Gnagne.
Media reports indicated that the player was unhappy with current happenings at the club and wanted to move out of the club for a new challenge. The supporters also demanded that the player should move out of the team because he was not helping their defense.
“In times of anger, people speak and say a lot of things that deep down they don’t intend. Even the Good Book says we should be cautious [about] what we say. I believe as a young man he acted in a way he felt was best, but maybe he has not been pleased with a situation which upon reflection he will realise he hasn’t reacted well to.” Frank Nelson told Class FM in an interview.
Quizzed if they have offered the Ivorian international a contract extension, he said, “I can say categorically that we have not offered him any new deal yet. Any report about a deal for now is untrue but I can also tell you that we are at the negotiating table working to come to an agreement.
“At the end of the day, he is like our son, and he knows what he means to the club. I compare his situation to Wayne Rooney who has in the past had some contractual issues with Manchester United but you know, at the end of the day, he will sign for United. I am sure Reuben will sign.”
