Hearts of Oak’s head coach, Martin Koopman, is eager for the club to expedite the signing of Ivorian striker Kassim Cisse during the second round of fixtures.
The Phobians have struggled to find the back of the net this season, with just one goal scored by Congolese import Wanet Ramos Kashala in their three BetPawa Premier League games.
The club had high hopes for Issah Kuka, but he signed with North Macedonia’s SHKUPI, leaving Hearts of Oak with Kojo Obeng Junior, Albert Eonde, and Wanet Kashala in their forward line.
Koopman, who has taken permanent charge of the club, believes additional firepower upfront is essential.
“What I want is, one goes another is coming back that was also what we said to each other but still not filled”
“He [Kassim Cissé] is here but still not signed so he can train but in training I cannot get three points. So it’s nice but that’s it, so I gave some pressure to the board.” Martin Koopman told Africa-foot.com.
Kassim Cisse, who arrived from Ivory Coast, has impressed the technical team but has yet to sign a contract.
Hearts of Oak currently have 3 points from their opening three games, losing 1-0 to RTU and Tano Bofoakwa in matchdays 1 and 3, with a 1-0 victory against Nsoatreman at the Accra Sports Stadium in week 2.
