Hearts will be relegated if they fail to settle my GH¢7,000 salary arrears - Dong Bortey

Dong Bortey claims Hearts owe him GH Dong Bortey claims Hearts owe him GH

Former Hearts of Oak star Bernard Dong Bortey has warned the club they risk demotion from the Ghana top-flight if they fail to pay him his GH¢7,000 arrears.

Bortey claims the oustanding salaries and bonuses which stretches back to 2004.

The clubless player is in dire need of money to pay the medical bills of his mother who on her sick bed according to reports.

Bortey says the repercussions will be dire for the club if they fail to come to his aid.

''I can't lie against Hearts of Oak, they owe me GH¢7,000 and must pay me before my mother dies else something terrible will happen to the club,'' Bortey told Otec FM

''If they they don’t owe such an amount, they should not pay the money and see if they can win the Ghana Premier League or survive relegation and collapse.

''What I've done for them, no player can do that in recent times. What Shamo Quaye did for Hearts of Oak, I came to continue and nobody has been able to better it since.

''When I said I'm bigger than Hearts of Oak, they thought I was lying. They will soon know that I’m bigger than the club and I’m not bragging. I’m even better than all the players currently at the club and can play better them so they should not joke with me because I’m the son of God.''
