Ex Hearts chief Tamakloe backs Akunnor to end trophy drought

Hearts of Oak coach CK Akunnor

Hearts of Oak patron Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe has given coach CK Akunnor an overwhelming endorsement to end the side’s trophy drought this season.

The former African champions have now gone two seasons without winning any piece of silverware.

The Phobians’ last title success was in 2010 when they won the Top four trophy.

The Accra-based side has since endured a title-stricken run but ex chairman Tamakloe says coach Akunnor’s initial works points towards a positive direction.

“I have always been saying that CK Akunnor is a good coach,” he told Kumasi-based Kessben FM.

“What he is doing in Hearts of Oak now is a great job and if he continues with what he is doing I have no doubt in my mind that Hearts will win the league.”

Hearts have made a strong start to the season – picking four points out of a possible six which included a 5-2 thrashing of New Edubiase United.
