Former Hearts of Oak skipper, Amankwah Mireku has blamed the club’s current predicament on lack of good attitude from the playing body.
Accra Hearts of Oak has gone about seven seasons without a major silverware — a span which is alien to the clubs fans.
Football connoisseurs and fans of the club has put the blame squarely at the doors of majority shareholder Togbe Afede XIV because the Clubs failure to lift a trophy began when he took over the mantle of administration in 2009.
But Amankwah Mireku who captained the team to defeat Esperance Sportive de Tunis in 2000 to win the CAf Champions League believes the decline of the club is down to lack of attitude on the part of the players.
“Football demands attitude, without it you can’t give off your best and I think that’s what players of Hearts of Oak of today lack,” Amankwah Mireku told Joy FM.
Amankwah Mireku, regarded as the most successful captain in the 104 years history of the Accra Hearts of Oak believes if the club has six Robin Gnagnes, they won’t have problems competing against the best in the country.
“If Hearts of Oak has six Robin Gnagnes, the club won’t have problems or they won’t be underperforming.” He noted.
He also called on fans of the club to go behind the team with prayers.
“The only thing Hearts of Oak fans can wish for is for the players to have the attitude to play for the club and all will be well. They should back the team with prayers and hope for the best.” He said.
