The Executive Chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak, Togbe Afede XIV, has touted the capacity of the outfit’s Board and Management to take the club forward.
He made this bold assertion in an extensive speech delivered at a news conference in the aftermath of the team’s exit from the CAF Confederation Cup.
Hearts lost 1-3 on aggregate to Malian side Real Bamako in the preliminary stage of Africa’s second-tier club football competition.
Addressing issues fans have pointed out about the need for a Chief Executive Officer to steer the affairs of the club, Togbe Afede stated:
“We believe that as a Board and management, we have what it takes to move this great club forward. Remember, this is still this team that won the treble in 2022-2021. Until we find someone we see qualified to lead this great club, I will continue to act as the Executive Chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak, supported by the Board and, of course, management”.
The aftermath of Hearts’ exit from the Confederation Cup led to widespread displeasure from supporters, with a section of fans deflating the car tires of Board Member Vincent Sowah Odotei.
Hearts also unveiled their new head coach, Slavko Matic, at the presser.
