Coach Addo – Now ambitious

HEAD-COACH of Accra Hearts of Oak, Herbert Addo is targeting the remaining three domestic titles at stake after leading the club to win the President Cup.

Hearts beat Kotoko on penalties last Wednesday to retain their President Cup title.

According to Addo, he was targetting success in all domestic competitions his side is involved in following their exit from the Confederation Cup.

Hearts remain defiant of their chances in the Premier League, despite their inconsistent form.

They are also in the semi-finals of the FA Cup where they will be facing Medeama and competing in the Elite Cup.

“One down, three more to go,” Addo said after his side’s President Cup feat.

“We are still in competition for the three titles and I still believe we can win them.”

Meanwhile, Addo says the current squad is been built for the future.

The ace trainer who has been managing clubs for the past 40 years believes the best years of his players will be seen in the near future if well managed.

Addo, who has had stint with a number of domestic clubs in the country, told the press about the naivety of the boys as evidence of their youthful stage.

The 2009 domestic champion hailed the importance of CAF matches to the overall growth and development of the young boys.

According to Herbert Addo, “we were given the chance to go to Africa to gain experience and we managed to gain that experience and we were motivated when playing those matches. About 10 of the players haven’t been on an airplane before and when you go, you get a little allowance in dollars. All these are little motivations for the young team.

“We are just encouraging them but unfortunately, things are not going the way we expected, but to me, I will say better late than never. This is because I am grooming the players and you can see the football they played today. These groups of players are for the future”

Accra Hearts of Oak is currently struggling in the domestic topflight, occupying 11th place on the league log with just one point above the relegation zone.
