Ex-Hearts Of Oak great Mohammed Polo has attributed part of the team’s struggles to the supporters as the club continues to seek its first major silverware in a decade.
According to the former Hearts Of Oak gaffer, attitudes of some supporters have changed, and are not passionate about the club unlike years ago.
Polo cited some supporters impose players on coaches and even offer monies for their “players” to gain favor and more playing time, in addition, they get a percentage when an offer comes for the player, if the coach rejects the players, the supporters begin to call for the coach’s head.
In an exclusive interview with Takoradi based Spice 91.9 Fm, Polo said:
“The fans now are different from the old ones. They are mostly money-minded people, they bring players and would want their percentages, they do business with some coaches, and it’s a sad thing I went to be a victim of, which made my work very difficult at Accra Hearts Of Oak.”
“As a legend of the club, the insults raised on by these supporters were extremely bad, but I managed to qualify them got Africa and placed them in the second position during my time as a manager. The supports are part of the problems as we as the current board and management.”
