Hearts of Oak board member Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has criticised coach Samuel Boadu for his lack of player control at the club.
The former Ghana Football Association President claims Boadu has no control over the players, who have been allowed to do whatever they want, and he attributes this to the club’s failure to win the Ghana Premier League in the just-ended season.
Hearts of Oak finished sixth, trailing champions Asante Kotoko by 19 points.
Despite the fact that the Phobians won the MTN FA Cup, giving Boadu five trophies in 15 months as Hearts of Oak manager, the renowned football administrator believes the former Medeama SC coach has a lot to learn.
“If you have a team and you’re camping and boys break camp, that should be a big concern to a coach.
“People keep on saying he’s won five trophies but once you look at the future of the club, that’s my concern. Football is a very tricky game. Maybe we’ve been able to win five trophies by chance because the way Hearts of Oak plays its football is not the way I see it,” he told JoySports.
“We have our own brand as a club and to me, it’s a disgrace that we dropped from the top position straight to sixth. If you have a child who drops from the first position in class to sixth all of a sudden, you find out why.
“I have noticed that he has no control over the boys, I advised him that he should know that he is in charge of the whole team, any blame that will come or misunderstanding in camp or wherever they are he will be held responsible.
“But it appears he doesn’t have that control over them. You talk to him, he tries to justify some things and it’s having an effect on the team.”
Hearts are expected to compete in the CAF Confederation Cup next season, and they will look to strengthen their current squad in preparation.
