Accra Hearts of Oak is gradually becoming a lazy club in terms of their recruitment policies.
The reason being that, they want to augment the club’s defensive frailties.
The pair have been manning the central defence of the club but they keep conceding unpardonable goals in the league.
It is interesting how Hearts of Oak will want to sign a player [Lee Addy] who has more or less past his prime, with all due respect to him.
Addy has seen all there is to see in the local having played for a host of clubs domestically.
The 30-year-old has had spells locally with Inter Allies, Nania FC and Berekum Chelsea before traveling abroad.
Following a fine showing for the Black Stars at the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, the former Accra-Academy student signed for Serbian side Red Star Belgrade.
While abroad he also featured for Croatian sides, Dinamo Zagreb and Lokomotiv Zagreb before moving to joining Cukaricki in 2015.
Addy has previously played for Zambian side Lusaka Dynamos and South Africa club, Free State Stars before travelling to Ethiopia where his deal was not fruitful due to the global COVID-19.
What Hearts of Oak are getting themselves into is a club that that is lazing with its recruitment policy.
If indeed the club thinks about the future, this is not the time to sign the 30-year-old who might lose steam in the next few years.
A case can be made for experienced defender, Nuru Sulley who struggles in a 1v1 situation with very sharp attackers in the Ghana Premier League.
It is time Hearts of moved away from the lazy recruitment style and focus on building a team for the next five to ten years.
