Yaw Amankwah Mireku acknowledged former club Hearts of Oak must be more consistent if it is to end their Ghana premier league, trophy drought.
Mireku, who captained the ’64 battalion’ to win several laurels in the early 2000s is worried about the recent player recruitment in the club.
According to him, the club needs to keep its players for years in order for them to transform the club into a winning side in the league.
“The real problem with Hearts of Oak has been consistency. The club has not been consistent when it comes to keeping players for long,” he said during Dabort vs Hearts of Oak’s FA Cup pre-match discussion on StarTimes.
“I also think the players are not making good use of the platform when it comes to Hearts of Oak or rather the club having been able to take advantage of using the players for a while”
“The players come and they leave within a short period and that has been the problem of the day for Hearts of Oak, they are not consistent, a player plays for a season or two and then he leaves so it’s always about new players coming into the team but during our time we had players who has been there for like three years so there was consistency”
Hearts of Oak have not won the Ghana Premier League since the 2008/2009 season.
