Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club is sorry to learn the demise of one its most illustrious sons, George Alhassan whose sudden death occurred on the 26th of July, 2013 at the age of 72.


The former Hearts of Oak striker, born on 9th September, 1941, led the line for the Phobians in the 1960s through to the early 1970s. His playing mates were Abeka Ankrah, Robert Foli, Joe Ghartey, Joe Dakota and others. George Alhassan, affectionately called "Ga Mantse" for his stint with Accra Hearts of Oak was a loyal servant of the Black Stars. The former Black Stars striker also played in the 1968 Olympics game where Ghana finished third in their Group behind Hungary and Israel respectively.

George Alhassan was a thorn-in-the-flesh of arch-rivals Kumasi Asante Kotoko, and he scored five times against the Porcupines in the league during his stint with Accra Hearts of Oak. The "Ga Mantse" scored in a classic 3-2 thriller win over Kotoko in Accra to end the Porcupine warriors' unbeaten streak in the league in the 1963/64 season.

He was also part of the Accra Hearts of Oak team that toured the United Kingdom for preseason in August, 1970.

Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club expresses its profoundest condolence to the family of George Alhassan. May his soul rest in perfect peace. Fare thee well, our "mantse."
