Hearts of Oak chief Neil Armstrong Mortagbe says the sideâ€™s inability to win any trophy this season will not be considered a failure.
The Phobians are unlikely to end the season with any piece of silverware having been knocked out of the FA Cup and with a 10-point gap to make on Asante Kotoko at the top of the Premier League.
This means the clubâ€™s bid to end a desperate wait for a coveted trophy will be further prolonged at least for one more season.
But the clubâ€™s managing director says it will be no failure if the disappointment of winning a trophy this season is further extended at the end of the current campaign.
â€œWe will not consider the season as a failure because we have seen our progress as compared to where we were last season,â€ he said.
â€œWe will obviously like to win laurels; Hearts of Oak is noted for winning laurels.
â€œBut as a failure, no. We wouldnâ€™t consider this season as a failure if we end the season without any silverware.â€
Hearts will be hoping to make grounds on leaders Asante Kotoko when they host struggling Ebusua Dwarfs in the midweek Premier League game on Wednesday.
