“There are measures and I have done it in a lot of organizations”.

“I am passionate about football and with my presence at Hearts, I believe we can do better “, he said.

“I am assuring commitment in raising the Oak tree again.”

“What I can assure supporters is, a Phobian is back and we are heading towards the top not only in Ghana but at international levels “.

“Mark Noonan is not totally out as he will be involved in other aspects “, he concluded.

The expatriate CEO started the re-branding of the club by getting them a new logo, moved them to start training at Pobiman, got them a sponsorship deal with UK kits manufacturing giants Umbro and started a wide range of other projects towards the rejuvenation of the club and Frederick Moore promises to continue from where Noonan left of.
