Former Hearts of Oak chief Harry Zakour has advised to club to sign players with names in their bid to restore the Phobians glory rather than focusing on building a youthful team not capable of winning trophies.
He says Hearts as a big club should always be buying players who have made names for themselves with huge experience for the betterment of the club.
He holds the opinion that building a youthful team won’t give the Phobians an instant results hence should learn from their rivals Asante Kotoko who have always lured big players to the club.
The Lebanese-born business mogul guided the Accra-based giants to clinch several league successes as well as their first and only CAF Africa Champions League in 2000 before switching into the political adventure.
With the Rainbow Club inability to win a league trophy in the last ten years, the club have undoubtedly lost its glories memories with many questioning the direction of the club under the leadership of Togbe Afede XIV
”Hearts and Kotoko are the big teams in the country so they always have to look for big names and buy big names but if Hearts has taken a different step, let’s play the league and see where they will end up.” Harry Zakour said on Kumasi FM 104.1MHZ
”If you have a youth team, it won’t work. How experienced are these players and where are they coming from.
”It’s not easy wearing a Hearts jersey is not easy. It comes with enough criticism and insults.”
