Former Hearts of Oak captain Amankwah Mireku says it will be ‘impossible’ for current coach of the club Edward Nii Odoom to reach the success chalked by the late Jones Attuquayefio.
The Phobians have not won the league in over a decade now, and finished the first round of the 2019/20 season in 9th place, although with a game in hand.
The Rainbow club paid tribute to late coach Attuquayefio on Monday, to mark the fifth anniversary of his demise.
Amankwah Mireku, who played and captained the team under Attuquayefio does not think the club’s current gaffer can emulate the success of the 2004/05 CAF Confederation Cup winning coach.
“Yes in Football coaches are important but for me Football is all about players ,players make coaches not coaches making players so you look at the calibre of players the late Attuquayefio worked with and now the players coach Odoom is working with, it makes it impossible,” he told Oyerepa FM.
“To ask coach Odoom to emulate the late Cecil Jones Attuquayefio in winning laurels will be impossible, it will be a herculean task for me.
“Winning the league has even become a problem but we won it six times,with this crop of players its impossible. It’s not about coach Odoom but the quality of players,” he concluded.
