For the past eleven years, the Phobians have not succeeded in winning the country’s top-flight league, the Ghana Premier League. And Edward Nii Odoom has assured that they will end their long trophyless run.
But for Kofi Abanga, who joined Hearts of Oak from Aduana Stars, thinks otherwise. During an interview reiterated that they will not win the upcoming season title. Because the club continuously repeats the same mistakes.
“I love Hearts of Oak because they gave me everything I needed in my career,” He told Kumasi based Pure FM.
“The issue is that they keep repeating the same mistakes. I have heard they have appointed a Portuguese as a technical director. But is he capable to help the club?
“I have gone through his records and I am not impressed and I am worried. Because it seems to me the hierarchy of the club failed to do a proper research on him.
“The players have played under Edward Nii Odoom and looking at the time we are left to start our league. How do you bring in a Portuguese as a technical director because he will eventually take over as the head coach ? And that is not proper for the club.
“The management of the club for me are failing to do the right thing. Because any serious club cannot do what Hearts of Oak are doing now. For me, they cannot win the league title this season.” He pretended
“I will be happy to see them in good form but you need to do the right thing. But with less than two weeks to the start of the league, you have now appointed a technical director to take over as the head coach. Who does that?” He added.
Abanga spent seven years with the Phobians, winning the Ghana Premier League in the 2008/2009 season, GHALCA Top 4 twice, the Homowo Cup and the President’s Cup.
