Former defender Benjamin Agyare believes Hearts of Oak has made a mistake by letting go of Joseph Esso as he stressed that the club will have a problem replacing the attacker.
Just recently, the Ghanaian giants through a communique on their official Twitter handle disclosed that they have parted ways with Agyare, Esso and other three key players of the first team after failing to successfully negotiate a contract renewal with the club.
Explaining the reason for Esso’s exit, Communication Director for Hearts of Oak, Kwame Opare Addo, stated that Esso wanted a one year extension of his contract while the club wanted a two year deal.
Speaking to Accra-based Angel FM, Benjamin Agyare says his release by Hearts of Oak doesn’t worry him that much when compared to Joseph Esso’s.
Agyare believes the club should have done better to keep a player of Esso’s calibre at the club.
Joseph Esso has proven himself as one of the best players for the Phobians and they should have at least kept him for a couple of years, he quizzed.
“Even if Joseph Esso wanted 1 billion a month, Hearts should have agreed,” he said.
“Esso is a fantastic player and an important player for the club.
“I am really amazed at how they let a player with the calibre of Joseph Esso go. In fact, he was very disappointed at the outcome of the meeting.”
Agyare previously played for Hearts of Lions before joining Hearts of Oak in 2018.
