Hearts of Oak legend, Bernard Don Bortey has lashed out at the club’s current players over what he describes as “they feel too proud of themselves.”
Bortey, who won the CAF Confederation Cup with Hearts of Oak in 2004 and four league titles, is now turning uncomfortably in his seat after his former club opened the 2021/22 league season without a win.
Hearts of Oak have played four games without a win – producing three draws and a week four defeat to AshantiGold at the Len Clay Stadium last Sunday.
“The players feel too proud of themselves because they think they have won double so is ok for now,” he said.
“The players if anyone think he can’t play hearts of oak,he should pack and leave the club.
“No should blame the coach for now because it’s the same coach coach who win the league for the club.
” I don’t think is right to even plan to sacked the coach , if you do that you will discourage the the young talented coach.” He told Adanse fm.
Hearts of Oak began the defence of their title with a goalless draw against Legon Cities at the Accra Sports Stadium and later produced a 1-1 score line from Sogakope in week two.
The Sogakope score line was replicated in week three at the Accra Sports Stadium against Aduana Stars before falling to AshantiGold 2-0 at the Len Clay Stadium in the fourth week.
