Accra Hearts of Oak’s Portuguese coach, Sergio Traguil, has called on fans of the club to show him some respect after weeks of criticism.
The Portuguese coach is yet to convince fans fully since taking over as head coach of the Phobians.
Pressure continues to mount on the coach with some fans calling on him to lay down his tools.
But in a sharp rebuttal, the coach has asked that he is shown a little respect because his team plays better.
“I arrived to the team; this will be my third week. One of the week I did not have time to work because it was Sunday we had a game, Wednesday we had a game and another game on Friday so it has not been easy for me.
“But despite that, against these three games that we have played, I had five points out of nine, in the first round Hearts made two points out of nine with these same teams.
“So I think I deserve a little bit more appreciation, I cannot perform magic,” he told Class FM Sports.
Sergio Traguil added his side is playing attractive football and he is happy with the team’s level of creativity.
“The players are adapting day by day, am proud of it and if you see the quality of football that we are performing on the pitch despite we lost a lot of chances, some of them are incredible but we are playing very good football.
“I was not expecting this kind of football right now, and we are performing.
“The people that understand football and go to the stadium they see that we are performing.”
The Phobians are among few clubs that find it difficult to score goals and Sergio Traguil express worry about that.
“We are creating a normal number of chances. It’s true we are creating but not scoring.
“Sometimes it’s lack of understanding in offensive movement but I know when we start scoring we will not stop and it will be very difficult to stop us.” – Ghanasoccernet
