Harry Zakour supervised the Ghanaian giants during their golden days in the early 2000’s where they dominated the domestic and international scene, winning multiple Ghana Premier League titles and the CAF Champions League title.
He joined the club from regional rivals Accra Great Olympics. Speaking on Asempa FM, Zakour, nicknamed 'Millennium Chairman' for the influential role he played in the club’s success story in 2000 called for support Frederick Moore to help him return the club to its glory days. "Everything Frederick Moore has stated with regards to the Pobiman project is achievable."
"There are good people on the board of Hearts Of Oak who are also capable of achieving better things for the club" he stated. Before the annulment of the 2019/20 football season, the club was struggling to maintain their consistency in the campaign under coach Edward Nii Odoom. But according to the renowned politician (Harry Zakour), the club needs quality players to meet their target. “The problem is lack of quality players,” he told Asempa FM. “Things have changed. The players we use to have are not the same today.
“We need to do more to help the club succeed because all is not lost and I believe when we get the right players, the club will start winning trophies as the club use to win trophies in the past,” he added.Togbe Afede XIV, Chief of the Asogli State in the Volta Region and a renowned businessman took over the club earlier this year after buying majority club shares during its sale.
“I love Hearts of Oak but Togbe does not listen to advice, in every administration you should have a board whether old or new that you listen to, I know he is doing very well but he needs advice, he is a good person and spending so much on Ghana football but not getting any good results because some people around him are failing to advise him”. Providing quality players without a trophy is zero margin but the breed of players now are better enough to get him a plaque this season.
