I Was Sacked From Hearts Of Oak Because I Refused To Use “Juju” – Leonard Moffat



Former Hearts Of Oak goalkeeper, Leonard Moffat, has revealed that he was sidelined from his football club based on his refusal to engage in the use of ‘juju’ during football games.
Moffat, a well-known player in the local Ghanaian football terrain during the early 1990s, played for top-class local Ghanaian football clubs namely Dawu Youngsters, Great Olympics, and Hearts of Oak.
Moffat’s exit from Accra Hearts of Oak reportedly stemmed from his immense commitment to his Christian faith and his strong stand against the use of ‘juju’ by the team.
He revealed that he actively discouraged certain players from resorting to these magic rituals as well.
Speaking in a recent interview on Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV, the former Great Olympics player made it clear that Hearts of Oak parted ways with him because they gave him ‘juju’ and he discarded it in the washing room during a game in Algeria.
According to him, they suffered a 3-1 loss in Algeria but managed a 2-1 victory at home in Accra.
He reiterated that he was actually the team’s skipper and goalkeeper during the defeat in Algeria.
Narrating further, he said when he was offered the ‘juju’ to distribute among the players of his team, he chose to discard his in the washing room.
He concluded that, upon returning to Accra, Hearts of Oak informed him that they no longer required his services, attributing the defeat to his actions.
