Public Relations Officer of Hearts of Oak’s supporters group – National Chapters Committee – Kobby Jones has called for calm heads to prevail following the club’s defeat to Dreams FC on match day 22 of the Ghanaian top-flight.
Samuel Boadu, head coach of Hearts of Oak, has come under backlash following his side’s disappointing loss to Dreams FC last Sunday which has put a dent on Hearts of Oak’s title aspirations temporarily.
The former Asokwa Deportivo and Medeama SC coach has picked up four points out of a possible 12 and his side has found the back of the net on just two occasions in their last four games.
Boadu, whose appointment coincided with the supporters clamoring for a home based gaffer to take over the reigns on the back of the exit of Kosta Papic, has endured a bitter sweet start to life in the capital with his latest defeat coming in the most recent round of fixtures arousing the anger of the fans with many expressing their dissatisfaction with his demeanour on the bench, style of communicating with the players and choice of players.
However, seasoned journalist cum dyed-in-the-wool Phobian Kobby Jones has called for supporters to be patient with the young tactician.
“We need to give Samuel Boadu enough time to do his work. If the coach is not performing well we need to look beyond him and look at management decisions, let’s concentrate and support the team” – he told Kumasi-based radio station Sikka FM.
“Injury and suspension has affected our team performance. Blaming it all on the coach technical team won’t solve the problem” he reasoned.
