Hearts Of Oak Players Have Become Complacent, There’s No  Hunger Again – Charles Taylor On Hearts’ Poor Start To The Season

Ghana Premier League icon Charles Kwaku Asampong Taylor has called out players of Hearts of Oak following their underwhelming start to the 2021-2022 season.

Hearts of Oak, double champions from last season, have endured a difficult start to the new campaign picking three points from a possible nine much to the chagrin of supporters coupled with the impressive start by archenemy Asante Kotoko, who have won all three of their opening fixtures in the Ghana Premier League.

The Phobians broke their trophy-less jinx which spanned over a decade last season in grand style as they swept every competition on the local scene however it appears the team’s results have been on the downward trajectory since suffering a 6-1 hammering at the hands of Moroccan heavyweights Wydad Athletic Club in the playoffs of the CAF Champions League.

Taylor, who played for the Phobians in a glittering spell between 2000-2003, contends the current squad of his former employers have become complacent following their success last season.

“The Hearts of Oak seem to have become complacent. I can see the hunger is no more there for most of the players and they play like they’re some big stars now,” he told Angel TV.

He urged head coach Samuel Boadu to cajole his boys to return to their best as the season wears on: “No urgency again. Boadu needs to talk to them to understand that they need to do more.”

The 2000 CAF Champions League winners will travel to Obuasi as they cross swords with Ashgold in a very tough test as they aim to snatch their first three points of the season against a side who recently sacked their manager on the back of a two-nil loss to joint league leaders King Faisal.

Charles Taylor, one of the few players to feature for Ghana’s two most glamorous clubs – Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko – is considered as one of the greats to have featured in the domestic league enjoying his most productive years with the Rainbow club and was part of the fabled 64 battalion, which bamboozled their way to both domestic and continental dominance.
