Bernard Arthur has launched a scathing attack on Hearts of Oak coach Edward Nii Odoom saying the trainer ‘doesn’t have balls.’
The striker who joined the Phobians last year under then-coach Kim Grant on a free transfer is unhappy with the treatment new coach Nii Odoom is meting out to him.
Arthur has found limited time on the pitch in the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season. The 23-year-old has scored a solitary goal in all competitions in 4 appearances.
According to Arthur, he has not been able to hit the ground running at Hearts of Oak because head coach Edward Nii Odoom has not been giving him enough playing time.
Speaking to Asempa FM, he descended on Nii Odoom saying ‘he does not have balls.’
“Coach Nii Odoom has not been fair to me,” he said. “He does not have balls and that is the truth.
“I have worked with top coaches like Sam Adday, CK Akonnor and expatriate coaches. If you don’t want a player, be bold and tell him I don’t like you and it can be in the form of text message but you don’t make a mockery of the player whiles he wants to play.
“I am a registered player but I don’t get playing time meanwhile, unregistered players are playing but during league matches, the coach will call you and introduce you to the game the dying minute of the game.
“People think I am not in good form but I have not been able to train properly since I joined Hearts of Oak and it has affected me.
“I made a huge impression against Liberty Professionals and Great Olympics and I was expecting to maintain my place in the team but he dropped to the bench against Kotoko.
“I am not happy with the treatment at the club,” he added.
