REQUEST FOR MUTUAL CONTRACT TERMINATION – NURU SULLEY
We extend our greetings to the Management and Board of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club.
On behalf of my player, Nuru Sulley, we write to request for a mutual agreement to terminate his current contract with the club. Our reasons for this request are as follows:
1. Getting towards the end of the season, it was clear he was not in the coach’s plans anymore. He was not even making the starting lineup in matches against lower division sides in the FA Cup.
2. Verbal promises were made to him prior to the signing of his contract, which have not been fulfilled. And truth be told, his current contract no longer favours him, and would want to be relieved from its terms.
3. As he approaches 30 years of age in the upcoming season, realistically, he would not command any high transfer value for the club and thus thinks he would continue to be a drain on the club’s wage bill, if he stays another season without being able to contribute towards the club’s progress on the pitch.
As intimated earlier, it has become obvious that he has fallen down the pecking order and would be used sparingly, if at all, during the next season. The current terms of his contract are not favourable, and he has a family to take care of. If all the money he earns in one month would be used to buy fuel to just come to training, then he won’t have the peace of mind to even give his best for the club, when his services are needed.
For the above reasons, we believe that instead of asking for better terms in a new contract, we mutually decide to terminate his current one. He has served the club faithfully and diligently in both stints he has been with this great club. But we believe now is the time to part ways, in an amicable way.
We are counting on your co-operation in this regard.
Yours in sports,
Nana Kwarteng Ayekpa
