NvlhrtsAccra Hearts of Oak, in a bid to strengthen their attack and keep alive the hopes of restoring phobia glory, has on Monday outdoored three strikers and an attacking midfielder with hopes of closing the gap between the league leaders Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

The players were Mustapha Abdul from Asokwa Warriors, Ezekiel Tetteh from Okwawu United, Gerald Wellington from AshantiGold and Edikay Berranger, an Ivorian striker.

Managing Director of Hearts, Neil Armstrong Mortagbe is confident that the players would help raise the standards of play in the team.

“These players have enough quality to ensure that good results are achieved and we are still hopeful of reliving our glory days, “he stated.

He said, the team currently lacks some attacking prowess and the getting such players, is a right direction to achieve results by scoring more goals.

“We created many chances but were unable to score and realized some attacking orientation would be a huge boost to our brilliant defence,”he added.

Mr. Mortagbe further expressed confidence ahead of their First Capital Plus Premier League clash against Dwarf today, stating that, the team will go all out for victory.

“Many lessons have been drawn from our lost against Wa All Stars as we moved on to win against Aduana at Dormaa and am certain we would win again, “he added.

He also called on fans to troop to the stadium to cheer the club stating that, the players are aware of what the supporters desire and would ensure to make them proud.

Meanwhile,Hearts have declared they will no longer embark on a mass recruitment exercise in their bid to beat down the ‘humungous debt’ of the club.

Hearts signed about seven players in the secondary transfer window just to bolster their side for the second half of the season.

This adds up to the reported 14 players signed at the beginning of the season. The club’s managing director Neil Armstrong Mortagbe now says there will no longer be such a massive recruitment drive with the club still haggling over choking debts owed groups and individuals.

“Hearts of Oak will not go on a mass recruitment,” Mortgabe said.

“This will not happen unless it is very necessary.

“This is why the club run into humungous debt and we will want to avoid this at all cost.” By Michael D. Abayateye
