Don Bortey Fires Complacent Hearts of Oak Players

Hearts of Oak legend, Bernard Don Bortey has blasted the players of his former side in the ongoing league season.

The Phobians have been a pale shadow of themselves in the start of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season; going four opening games without a win. Hearts of Oak opened their campaign against Legon Cities FC which ended goalless at the Accra Sports Stadium in week one. The second week was equally a difficult task against West Africa Football Academy in Sogakope which ended 1-1 after full time. Hearts of Oak made a return home against Aduana Stars in week three where they were bent on picking their first three points of the season. They were however pegged by the two time Ghana champions in a 1-1 draw at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The fourth week was stumble in Obuasi against AshantiGold at the Len Clay Stadium where the millennium champions were beaten 2-0 through Yaw Annor and Abdul Salam’s goals in each half. The result means the Phobians have gone four games without a win - only managing three draws and one defeat in week four. Bernard Don Bortey who won the CAF Confederation Cup in 2004 with Hearts of Oak as well as four league titles believes the players have become complacent.

“The players feel too proud of themselves because they think they have won double so is ok for now,” he said. “The players if anyone think he can’t play hearts of oak,he should pack and leave the club. “No one should blame the coach for now because it’s the same coach coach who win the league for the club. ”I don’t think is right to even plan to sacked the coach , if you do that you will discourage the the young talented coach.” He told Adanse fm.

The Phobians will miss the week five league clash against Berekum Chelsea because they play Algeria club, Jeunesse Sportive de Saoura in the first leg of the CAF Confederation on Sunday, November 28 before the return leg in a week in Algeria.
