Accra Hearts of Oak captain Mohammed Fatawu says it is his ambition to lead the club back to trophy-winning form.
The Phobians are one of the most successful teams in Ghanaian football history, though they have hit a lean spell of late, failing to win a trophy since their last league title back in 2009.
Eleven years without a piece of silverware is unacceptable for a club of Hearts’ size and heritage, but Fatawu is confident that their fans won’t have too long to wait before the drought ends.
“It has been long since we won a major trophy and as captain of this great club, I feel the pain of the fans who in diverse ways have supported us all this while,” Fatawu told his club’s official website.
“I challenge myself to end this drought and together with my colleagues, we are constantly working hard to put smiles on the faces of the fans.
“There is enough talent at the club to see us through and we cannot wait for football to resume in Ghana after the coronavirus pandemic.
“I look forward to the day when I will lift a trophy and dedicate it to the fans for being with us through these trying moments and, together we will all celebrate.”
Hearts were placed eighth on the log of the 2019-20 Ghana Premier League when the season was suspended in March due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The Ghana Football Association are scheduled to decide the fate of the current campaign by the end of June.
