Veteran Ghana coach, Bahsir Hayford has attributed the struggles of Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko to lack of planning.
Ghana’s two top clubs are out of the FA Cup, a competition that qualifies a team to the CAF Confederation Cup.
Both clubs are out of contention for the league title with Hearts of Oak in 7th on the league table with 45 points and Kotoko in 4th on 47 points with three games to end the season.
Bahsir Hayford says the younger clubs are doing well due to their better plans over the bigger clubs.
“We are all aware that these are the two clubs that have a very large following and you expect them to perform every year or biannually, you expect them to win the league.
“Now this shows that it is all about planning, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
“Because this time the players are evenly distributed unlike previous days or previous years where a cluster of players will be at Hearts or Kotoko and before we start the league then one can predict that they can win the league.
“So for me if the two giants are not in the top four or one of them is struggling in the top four, it means the other young clubs are planning well or maybe they are organizing themselves well, recruiting well, coaching well, preparing them well and that is what it is about.” Bashir Hayford told Radio Gold Sport.
