Aziz Haruna Futah : Former management member of Hearts of Oak Aziz Haruna Futah has branded the current Hearts of Oak management as the worst ever in the recent history of the club.
The Phobians were battered 3-0 by AS Real Bamako during the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup Second Round Preliminary Round match and will need to stage a great comeback if they are to qualify to the Play-Off Round of the competition.
“This is the worst ever Hearts of Oak management I have seen. Aziz Haruna Futah told Kumasi-based Nhyira FM on Monday afternoon.
“What they (Hearts of Oak management) did was to sack him (Samuel Boadu) , bring any coach at all knowing that same week they were going to play in Africa. So you will need a better replacement which can handle the team but they did not look all these. They just decided and now look at what is happening” the outspoken Phobian explained.
Futah went on and said :
“I am not against the sacking of Samuel Boadu but they needed to get a replacement coach in place who will take over. How can you sack your head coach and then you hire an assistant coach of your rivals Kotoko to lead you to Africa? That was a funny decision” Aziz blasted.
The former Hearts of Oak supporters chief does not believe board members Alhaji Brimah Akambi and Vincent Odotei Sowah have what it takes to lead the Continental Club Masters to glory whilst bringing in board chair Togbe Adede.
“Hearts of Oak don’t have a management in place. I don’t even know the words to use to describe them. With Akambi as board member, Odotei as a board member I heard Togbe Afede saying that he is the acting CEO of the club alongside Akambi and Odotei but with all due respect to all these gentlemen I can tell you this is the worst management so far. ” Futah added.
Former Asante Kotoko assistant coach David Ocloo was appointed by Hearts of Oak as an assistant coach. Ocloo led them to Bamako for Confederation Cup first leg as the Phobians are yet to name a substantive head coach.
