Hearts of Oak Need Experienced Players To Thrive - Augustine Ahinful
A former Ghanaian international, Augustine Ahinful has called on the management of Hearts of Oak to sign experienced players if they want to dominate Ghana Premier League and Africa again.
The Phobians are yet to win a trophy since the 2009 season.
Despite the inclusion of Abednego Tetteh, Nuru Sulley, Eric Dizan and two other foreign players the recruitment policy of the club have been questioned by many football commentators and supports of the club.
But according to Ahinful, the Phobians will need experienced players to blend with the young players to win trophies.
“I have heard Hearts of Oak dominating the headlines because of their player recruitment policy,” he told Asempa FM.

“I have read Nuru Sulley has returned to the club with the addition of Abednego Tetteh and a Nigerien striker. It is all good but you cannot do it without experienced players.
“For me, that is the important thing for the club to do. They should sign experienced players and blend them with the young players. Without that, I don’t think they can anything meaningful.
“Europeans take time to develop players and you see the difference when they are playing. We should also learn from that and welcome experience players into our local league,” he added.
