Since Hearts of Oak last won the CAF Confederations Cup in 2004, both clubs have been desperate for a continental title. Since then, both teams have taken turns representing the country in African interclub competitions, but have failed to reach the semifinals.
Bashir Hayford, who last coached Legon Cities, has been inactive for more than a year but is interested in returning to the dugout to offer his expertise once more. He, therefore, is willing to assist any of Ghana's two best teams in history in resuming their dominance on the African continent.
“I am ever ready to coach if called upon. Though I'm unattached now, I have not quit coaching,” he said on Akoma FM.

“I am more mature now and my understanding of the game has grown, I am available for either Kotoko or Hearts.”
“When given the opportunity to coach any of these clubs, within 3 years, I will possibly deliver a continental trophy,” he continued.
“I normally use my first year of appointment to assess the players since, groom the team and correct some mistakes. In the second year with some little infusion of new players, we are good to go. If we don't win the league in my second year, surely in the 3rd season it will be a done deal.
“We can possibly win a continental trophy but it will not be immediate.”
