Hearts of Oak captain Fatwu Mohammed has launched a scathing attack against the board of the club for its inability to recruit quality players for the club and board chairman Togbe Afede XIV has to be worried now that his skipper can no longer bear the trauma of keeping quiet.
The Phobians, in the last year, have lost Thomas Abbey, Kwame Kizito, Vincent Atingah, Winful Cobbinah, Inusah Musah and recently Patrick Razak and the current skipper of the Continental Club Masters seems to suggest the failure to replace these quality players is the main cause of the team’s poor performance.
The Phobians lied 13th position, just one place above the relegation zone, after the first round of the 2018 Ghana premier league season.
“You cannot compete if you keep on signing second division and first division players. They are simply not good. They cannot play. You cannot do well with these second division players” Fatawu Mohammed lambasted following Hearts of Oak’s 2-1 friendly loss against Ebusua Dwarfs on Sunday.
“That is why we are always losing. The younger players from the second division and first division are not up to the task and it is the reason we are struggling to even score goals” the aggrieved full back added.
The right back came off the bench to score an equalizer against Dwarfs but the Mysterious club scored again to win the friendly game 2-1 and this was the catalyst leading to Fatawu’s outburst.
Meanwhile Fatawu’s critique against the Togbe Afede-led Hearts of Oak board has been supported by the famous Hearts of Oak National Supporters spokesperson Sunsum De Graft.
“The only player that gave you comfidence as a supporter was Patrick Razak but now he has also left us. These current players are not what Hearts of Oak should be having. They are simply not good.” Sunsum lamented.
“Nowadays when you look at the Hearts of Oak starting line up, you don’t even know the players in there” he added.
Togbe Afede is the board chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak as the majority shareholder and the buck stops with him.
