Hearts CEO predicts an improved season

Accra, Sept. 30, GNA – Fred Crenstil, Chief Executive Officer of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club, has predicted a much more improved performance from the Club in the 2011/12 soccer season, promising fans of seeing a transformed side in the premiership.

He said the pre-season preparations of the Club ahead of the commencement of the season was far better than the previous seasons and this has put the players in a better shape physically, tactically and psychologically for the new season.

“As I speak to you, the players have been in camp for a long time with absolute concentration ahead of the season. This is different from last season where our pre-season preparation was woefully in adequate”. He told the GNA Sports in an interview.

Crenstil added that the Club has also recruited quality players who are also committed and loyal to the cause of the Phobians.

“I can tell you that we have the best crop of players at our disposal, they are young with a lot of strength and energy and ready to fight the cause of the Club in the coming season.

Asked as to why the Club was unable to recruit any high profile player for the coming season, Crenstil noted that none of the Premier League Clubs was ready to release any of their players on transfer.

“We wanted to sign three players from Ebusua Dwarfs but they declined the offer. We also made serious efforts to sign Gilbert Fiamenyo and Bright Nsiah but we were frustrated so we have to look elsewhere”. The CEO lamented.

He, however, noted that the quality of materials in the Club was enough assurance of a better season despite the difficulties encountered during the transfer season.

“I can assure you that we are going to do well in the coming season. I cannot say we are going to win the League but Hearts will exhibit a much more improved performance next season.” He stated.

Crenstil predicted that the Club would record three straight wins over Berekum Arsenals, Tudu Mighty Jets and Berekum Chelsea to set the tone for their conquest in the new season.
