We’re determined to make Hearts succeed – Sowah Odotei

Acting Managing Director of Hearts of Oak, Vincent Odotei Sowah, says the management of the club are determined to win laurels.

The management of the club have been widely criticised by the supporters for ending the 2016/17 campaign trophy-less.

The team looked rejuvenated under the auspices of Frank Nuttall who replaced Kenichi Yatsuhashi.

Nuttall could, however, only steer the team to a 3rd position with 47 points and lost the MTN FA Cup to their rivals Asante Kotoko.

Ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, Mr Odotei, who doubles as the Member of Parliament (MP) for La Dadekotopon Constituency said they are determined to make the a club a successful brand.

“It’s a sad reflection on the general ball industry in Ghana but presently, I can tell you that the current board and management of the club are really determined to raise the club to a higher pedestal. We are determined to make it a very successful brand and we are determined to make sure the club is fit financially and that is why we are trying to put in place measures to ensure that we build a foundation for better things to come,” he told Class Sports in an interview on Monday November 13.

He emphasised: “Things are going to be different next season and we are very confident about that. Maybe when we publish our statement for the just-ended season, the supporters will see that a lot of things have improved within the club and that is why I am sad when people start to criticise the management of the club. There was massive improvement in the gate proceeds but we haven’t gotten there yet because we are far away from where we want to be.”
