Hearts of Oak Bankroller Togbe Afede XIV says the technical instability within the club is a result of the attitude of some supporters.
The Phobians have been underperforming in the 2022/23 season, getting knocked out in the FA Cup and languishing in the middle of the Premier League.
Coach Abdul Rahim Bashiru replaced Martin Koopman and the results have not been impressive. Togbe Afede highlighted fans’ reaction when the board makes a major technical decision on coaches.
“When we got Boadu from Medeama, the insults were plenty. People even labelled him a fake person on some of the Hearts platforms. Today, they want him back; it is unbelievable.”
The Board Chairman recounted his experience on Japanese trainer Kenichi Yatsuhashi who departed the club after a superb start.
“Sometimes these relationships and the people who are anti-progress for Hearts of Oak mess the coach around; they mess them up.
“One of them is Kenichi, who was doing so well. After he won four, or five matches, he made new friends. Then he turned against us; he told us what we had never heard before. He wanted to go on leave, and we could give him a leave, and he left,” Afede explained.
Off the pitch, great sporting projects have been established. But on the green turf, its been inconsistency in the last two seasons.
The Phobians lie 11th in the Ghana Premier League standings after 16 games.
