Chairman of Hearts of Oak’s National Chapters Committee, Mr. Elvis Herman Hesse Herman has called on the club to beef up the squad in order to compete for laurels.

His call comes following a the club's disappointing 1-1 draw in a friendly against Wa All Stars Last Sunday at the Accra sports stadium.

The Phobians have gone on a league drought for a decade now and Mr. Herman believes the quality of the squad must be improved if the club want to be at the top once more.

“I saw a lot of average players in Hearts of Oak game against Wa All Stars. We need to recruit one or two experienced players if we want to compete for the league title”, the Hearts supporters chief told Happy FM.

“We have not won any major trophy in the last nine years and we have lost generational supporters. The only way we can bring supporters back is by engaging them. The Board must be closer to the supporters”, he added.

Mr. Herman also mentioned that Kim Grant must ensure Hearts of Oak secure a respectable position on the league log in the new season.

“Coach Kim Grant has been granted the freedom and space to work but we expect more this time around.  We can’t wait any longer but also we don’t want to give him pressure.

“I know the target the club gave but he is a coach and he know the kind of club he is coaching and what the club has been through.

“We are not asking for the league title this season but if he wins it, it will be a plus. Our target is to finish in a respectable position. I can say for a fact that we have too many average players in the team”, he concluded.
