Former Hearts of Oak coach Mohammed Polo insists only he could revive the fortunes of the Accra-based giants, arguing that even Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho wouldn’t get the job done.
Hearts find themselves near the foot of the Ghana Premier League table after taking just one point from their first two matches, and they face a tricky clash away to Ebusa Dwarfs later today.
Polo was axed by Hearts in 2015 after just one season in charge, but claims he can turn their fortunes around.
“Why not, I have to help Hearts of Oak because it's a team I really love, but due to the team's current situation, I will be available after the management has accepted my conditions," he told OTEC FM's Royal Sports, as quoted by Ghanasoccernet.
“Accra Hearts of Oak is an institution that possesses great history and tradition, which is able to attract players who are serious about the game.
“In turn,I feel I can marry the two, to return Hearts to their helm as Ghanaian football champions.
“I know that Hearts of Oak are one of the country’s most successful clubs, and have an esteemed history of producing international level talent that represents Ghana in Europe’s top leagues and the country’s national team.
"Ghana football is going down of late and since I am a football lover, I'm ready to help improve things.
"Mourinho and Pep Guadiola can't even change the current situation at Heart of Oak, they will still remain in a mess.”
