Hearts of Oak Remember Legendary Late Coach Sir Cecil Jones Attuquafio

Hearts of Oak have remembered their celebrated former coach Sir Cecil Jones Attuquayefio who died five years ago.

Attuquayefio guided the Phobians to two major African titles- the 2000 CAF Champions League and maiden CAF Confederation Cup in 2004.

A club Tweet accompanying a collage read: ”Today marks exactly five 5️⃣ years since the passing of the most successful coach in the history of our club, Sir Cecil Jones Attuquayefio.

”We remember the many great and joyous moments we chalked together and continue to pray for your soul.”

Attuquayefio has died at the age of 70 in 2015 following a long battle with cancer.

He was also national team coach for Benin and chalked a historic feat of leading the Squirrels to their first Nations Cup in 2004.

As a player, Attuquayefio won the Nations Cup itself, scoring twice in the group stages before starting the 1965 final as Ghana beat Tunisia 3-2.
