Togbe Afede XIV made an itching statement on the new signings to Hearts fans

Now the crying of the supporters have been heard alright but the next step is for the coach to deliver to show his competence. The yelling have so far yield something positive to help the club climb to the top of the league on the third position. Ensuring that there is enough security and adherence among the board and the technical bench. The truth still remaions that the club is about to sign more players and is not going to stop now. The supporters as a result of this met the media on Wednesday morning at the club’s secretariat and made four demands to the board chairman Togbe Afede XIV which includes appointing a new local coach for the club by close of Friday. “The NCC demands the immediate appointment of a first-team coach. “This should be done in consultation with all the stakeholders. We have realized that the expatriate coaches have not helped the club for the past decade. “We will not hesitate to take any action when an expatriate coach is appointed. The NCC wants to be involved in who becomes the next Chief Executive Officer and a local coach,” the club’s supporters chief, Elvis Herman Hesse said.

Following the resignation of Papic, the Hearts of Oak management and board were accused of interference. However, Togbe Afede speaking at the unveiling of Boadu said the former Medeama gaffer will be given the freedom to decide who gets to be his assistant. “We have agreed that technical matters will be his responsibility, it does not prevent the board from making appropriate recommendations but that would be his domain," he said. “We have always recognized in our contract the right of the coach to make his technical decisions for which he will take responsibility. Hearts of Oak board members Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe and Vincent Sowah Odotei have rejected claims of interference by Serbian trainer Kosta Papic, who controversially left post as head coach of the club on Monday. 

It is clear and ideal that, the board doesn't want to be left out of the teams technical bench looking at the presence of the members still around the team. Togbe Afede XIV comments he made earlier shows that the gaffer will be given the free will to work but he made another statement that they will still recommend when necessary. The coach was supposed to choose his own assistant but reports reaching us shows that the board are rather doing negotiations and scouting for him. "Hearts of Oak players told the board that Kosta Papic is their problem because of his favoritism in the team when it comes to player selections," Nyaho-Tamakloe is quoted by Sportsworldghana as saying. “The players complained that the coach kept changing his winning team and there were inconsistencies of tactics implementation which he also featured injured players in matches."
