Mohammed Polo, a legendary figure at Hearts of Oak, has expressed his waning interest in the club in recent seasons due to the noticeable decline in the quality of football being played by the team.
Hearts of Oak has been enduring a poor run of form, losing six out of their last seven matches in the Ghanaian top-flight league.
Their defeat at home against RTU has plunged the team into a relegation battle, as they currently sit in 11th place on the league table with 45 points. This makes their final away match against Berekum Chelsea a must-win situation.
“I do watch them play sometimes, but not all the time because my interest in the team has really diminished,” Polo stated during an interview on Fox FM.
“Whenever I watch them, I ask myself what has happened to the club that we sacrificed so much for. I feel sad when I watch Hearts of Oak games these days. It’s disheartening to see the players’ performances on the pitch.”
However, Polo acknowledged that he cannot completely stop watching the team since football is his profession and passion. Nevertheless, he finds it discouraging to witness their current performances.
Polo believes that all stakeholders of Hearts of Oak must unite to restore the club to its rightful position.
“I believe there should be a solution to the problems facing Hearts of Oak, and we must all come together. One person alone cannot solve the issues at the club. I’m referring to the management, the board members, the coaches, and the supporters of the club,” Polo emphasized.
“Even if you can’t offer anything significant, you can still voice your opinion. Nowadays, we have social media where you can express your thoughts in a way that can be helpful. I’m talking about constructive criticism. That’s what I mean,” he concluded.
The 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League champions will pay a trip to Golden City Park to face Berekum Chelsea on the final day of the season.
