Hearts of Oak part ways with coach Fabin

Published on: 10 January 2011

Struggling Accra Hearts of Oak have parted ways with coach Paa Kwesi Fabin by mutual consent on Monday after disappointing results in the league.

The coach met club officials on Monday to discuss the recent poor results by the club and he was given an ultimatum to win their next game Arsenal.

But they disagreed on the ultimatum which paved the way for the two sides to agree that Fabin must step aside.

“Paa Kwesi Fabin has left Heart of Oak by mutual consent following a meeting this afternoon,” Hearts CEO Fred Crentsil told

The chaotic situation in Hearts comes in the wake of their shocking 1-0 defeat to Real Tamale United on Sunday in Accra.

Fabin supervised Hearts to their seventh defeat of the season to lowly-placed RTU that left them 11th on the table in the 16-team league.

Fabin took charge of the 20-time champions before the start of the season and led them to win the pre-season Top 4 tournament.

Meanwhile, Fabin’s assistant Tanko Shaibu has taken temporary charge of the team with youth team boss Anthony Allotey helping out.

    Sacking Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin would not solve the woes of Accra Hearts of Oak."According to Paa Kwesi on happy fm, anybody who said it was a mutual agreement is a liar".He was asked to step aside.Mr Fred Crentsil is a disgrace to Accra Hearts of Oak as a CEO he needs to be shown the exit.

    mr. crentsil is rather killing hearts,paa kwesi fabin is the right coach for hearts.while lesser club like b.a stars were buying quality players,a whole ceo of hearts was begging for 2nd division players what crentil and the board chairman mr mensah should quit now or is likely the will struggle during the second round.

    Centsil, thats a great move. Fabin is a big dissapointment. Even with second divison players a good coach is easy to identify.

    So who steps in now?We even made a big mistake by parting ways with Coach Yussif Abubakar who transformed the team last season though we failed to defend the league title.The so called CEO and his management are tearing our team apart with bad administration even including the past management these ppls have failed us BIG TIME.When was the last time Hearts Of Oak participated in the CAF Champions league not to talk of reaching the group stages and probably winning it?Imaging a club like Hearts Of Oak doesn't have a modern training facility not even a club house,fitness centers and other facilities as a club.We lack all this WHY?I know all these projects involves money but a club like Hearts Of Oak should have all these facilities by now.No proper planning,bad recruitment,no strategic plans etc.

    Sacking Coach Paa kwesi Fabin will not solve the crrent poor run in Hearts of Oak.The players do not show commitment on the field of play. Some of the players must be sacked since hearts problem is not about coaching.
