Ernest Thompson urges Hearts’ supporters to put pressure on management

Ernest Thompson has called on the supporters of Accra Hearts of Oak to put pressure on the management and the board of the club to bring them back to winning ways.

Hearts of Oak have gone 6 seasons without a trophy and struggled to beat relegation last season, finishing 13 place in the 16-club league and replaced the head of the technical team, following the close of the season.

However, the Japanese –American trainer, Kenichi Yatsuhashi brought in to take over the club from Edward Ansah, who was named the caretaker coach after the sack of Herbert Addo, has also been struggling in the pre-season, having failed to beat any topflight side his outfit have played.

Ernest Thompson, who is not into active football administration at the moment, believes that although it is early days yet to make a judgment on the coach, the outcome of his beginning can give you an idea of his end product for the club and has also advised the supporters to assume the role they have neglected as a pressure group.

“Maybe he might be a good coach, but if a coach is good you will see it from the beginning. The question is that no quality player has been brought on to this current Hearts team.

“I don’t know the structures, but during our time we had a recruitment committee that will sit down with the coach.

“It is the role of the supporters to put pressure on the management and the board to bring the team back to winning ways,” he told Nhyira FM.
