Former Hearts of Oak coach Eyal Lachman has opened up about the state of the club when he took over in 2008.
The Israeli trainer was brought in to revive the fortunes of Ghana Premier League giants after Abdul Karim Zito vacated the post.
The Phobians were 16 points off the pace from leaders Kotoko and laid just three places above the relegation zone, halfway through the season.
“I felt a lot of responsibility when I took over because of the situation the club was in at the time, it was very bad” he confessed in an exclusive interview with FootballMadeInGhana.com
“The team was down, some key players had left and especially the connection between the supporters and club was not so well”
