Accra Hearts of Oak’s caretaker coach Seth Hoffmann has admitted that he has a difficult task at hand in leading the team following the departure of Henry Wellington.
The Phobians recently terminated Wellington’s contract following the team’s disappointing showing in the first round of the Zylofon Cash Premier League, which is Ghana’s top flight league.
Hearts, who are 20-time league champions, have generally underwhelmed as they occupy the 12th position, three points from safety, but Hoffmann is confident of changing the team’s fortunes.
“We are all involved and we are all needed to move this club forward,” he said on the club’s official website.
“One person cannot do it. I believe every Phobian in every corner of the country and beyond must come on board. We all have roles to play.
Hoffman, who has been serving as Hearts under-20 coach, was promoted to take temporary charge of the senior team until a substantive coach is appointed.
“For me, I will work hard with the boys. It is going to be about work, work, work, and work. I expect hard work from all the players and I am happy with the response I got from the playing body during our training yesterday and today,” he added.
“The boys showed a willingness to work. They cooperated technically and tactically and I am of the firm belief that when they push and work harder, the results will definitely come.”
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) recently announced that football activities be brought to a halt.
This was after the public airing of the Anas Aremeyaw Anas investigative expose which highlighted corruption in the local game.
