Former management member of Accra Hearts of Oak, Muheeb Saeed has emphatically stated that the majority shareholder of the club, Togbe Afede should be blamed for the club’s current woes.
The former communication Director of the club made this known in an exclusive interview on Angel 102.9FM’s Floodlight Sports on Monday following the club’s 3-0 defeat to Meadeama SC in the ongoing Ghana Premier League.
“Togbe should be the one to bear the brunt if today things are not going well at Hearts. Equally, the praises would have been attributed to him had things gone well thus far in his 10-year-stay as the top individual in the Hearts fraternity.
“The board members, management members and the CEOs who have been appointed in this period of rot were all rubber-stamped by him and so it will only be fair to lay a chunk of the blame at his doorsteps,” he said.
Speaking of the leadership of the club, Muheeb added that “those who have been appointed over the years to steer the affairs of the club are not astute football people and when am talking football people I mean top handlers who have the required expertise and know-how and have been ever presents in our game enough to have had such an impact on our football association.”
“If a CEO is appointed and he’s not somebody well known and with a proven track record, its obvious that such persons will not succeed,” he continued.
Muheeb, a journalist by profession further lamented that the club can no longer rely on its past glories.
“We are now Hearts of Oak only in name and in prestige but when it gets to the crunch and the most important moments, opponents present such shrewd and astute football administrators who are more knowledgeable about the intricacies of the local game than what Hearts bring to the table,” he said.
Meanwhile, Accra Hearts of Oak are currently in the relegation zone of the current league having failed to score a goal in two defeats.
