Defending league champions, Accra Hearts of Oak could be in dire need of players following the recent departures of some its key stars.
The Phobians have lost some key players on a free with others mutually exiting the club with their contracts not yet expire. To start with, a creative midfielder who could equally play from the wings, Manaf Umar is expected to leave the club if his contract expires. His absence could create a void in the squad as he is a hell of a good player. The 2000 CAF Champions League winners have already lost central defender, Nuru Sulley who mutually left their club. He left the club after failing to command a regular shirt due to the form of Robert Addo Sowah and the eventual rise of James Sewornu.
Nuru Sulley’s exit has left the Phobians with only Mohammed Alhassan, Robert Addo Sowah, James Sewornu and Caleb Amankwah as they center backs at the club. The 2001 CAF Super Cup winners have recently lost midfielder, Emmanuel Nettey to Iraqi club, Duhok SC. The former Inter Allies midfielder left the Phobians following the expiration of his contract on December 31, 2021.
The 2004 CAF Confederation Cup winners are set to lose another key player in the coming days according to reports in the media. Reports indicate that, diminutive winger, Patrick Razak is expected to leave the club after falling down the pecking order. The speedster has lost his place in the squad and has not been part of match day squads in the past weeks which does not go down well with him. Patrick Razak’s made a return to the Phobians after a botched stay at Guinea club, Horoya. Hearts of Oak must search for equally good replacements for the players who have departed or they might struggle this and the subsequent seasons.
