Former Hearts of Oak midfielder, Lawrence Adja-Tetteh, believes the current crop of players at his former club, have what it takes to bring back the glory days.
The 2004 Confederations Cup winner also said, the players are matured and good enough to compete for the ultimate with other teams in the Ghana Premier League and beyond. The retired footballer won the CAF Champions League in 2000 with the Phobians going on to win the CAF Super Cup – Felix Houphouet-Boigny trophy in 2001, after putting 2 goals past Zamalek in Kumasi.
In an interview with Tema Community 2 based radio station Plan B 104.5 FM, the mercurial midfielder was quick to add that, If glory days are to return, then the current Hearts of Oak squad need to work extra hard coupled with all the necessary support from management such as squad reinforcement and the provision of adequate training facilities.
“I think the Players at the Club now can win the ultimate. “It is up to the management and the supporters to rally behind them and give them the maximum support,” he also said;
“During our time we were able to win trophies and chalked a lot of success because of the support we had from management and the supporters.
“I think these current boys also deserve the kind of support we had”.
Accra Hearts of Oak have not been able to secure a trophy since the year 2009, when they were crowned champions of the Ghana Premier League.
