Majority share holder Togbe Afede defends Hearts of Oak regular sacking of coaches

It seems there is a culture among almost all the big clubs in the world regarding coaching job- that have seen coaches hired and fired on regular basis.

And Ghana Premier League outfits Hearts of Oak is no exception especially in the club’s last 15-years of existence.

Hearts have sacked as many as 20 coaches in recent years with former Ghana international Kim Grant being the latest casualty.

Though the act may be seen justifiable within the club’s top hierarchy, however their lovely support base has on several occasions expressed concern of worries for Hearts’ rapid hire-and-fire approach to coach.

But highly-respected President of the National House of Chiefs and Majority share holder of the club Afede XI insists the hiring and firing of coaches reflects the ambition of the club.

“People say we change coaches, well sometimes that is a reflection of the ambitions of the club,” he told GTV Sports+

“Go to the history and see how many coaches Real Madrid have had in the last 15 years,” he remarked.

“So we are doing the best we can and they should also believe that in the board there is a lot of talent. We have the likes of Nyaho Tamakloe who has been in football administration at all the levels, from Accra Hearts of Oak to the FA. So we would make it.

“Many people cannot imagine where we want to take Hearts to. Maybe they are thinking about here, we are thinking about there. We only need their support, genuine support, the need to have faith in the leadership and they will see that the smiles will be back.”

The act has been associated with the club’s title drought in the last 12 years where the Accra based side has only managed the Ghana Premier League in 2009.
