Herbert Addo: Hearts won't be making any 'miracle' signings this season

Herbert Addo has warned Hearts fans not to expect any ‘miracle’ signings ahead of the start of the new season.

The experienced tactician is expected to hold his first training session with the side on Tuesday after signing a two-year contract with them.

Hearts have been linked with a string of players in the Africa country, from Medeama’s duo Foli Adade and Hans Kwoffie, Aduana Stars defender Godfred Saka to New Edubiase playmaker Asiedu Atobrah.

The former Inter Allies coach, however insists his main concern is about maintaining performance levels of the current crop of players.

“There are players who have played their heart out over the period. Those are the ones we must be looking at,” he said

“What I worry about is to get them to play at their full potential.

“If we perform at full potential we cannot expect any miracle from outside, we want to make things happen inside.”

Hearts are keen to rediscover their form after playing catch-ups to Kotoko over the past three seasons.

Hearts last won the League title in 2008.

    Nii, I agree with you. That has been the trend of this unreliable Hearts. They either don't have vision or the money to negotiate for the best players and they end up playing with the same school boys, thinking they can win laurels. Making it absolutely impossible for coaches to perform. These players are too inferior and end up with injuries with the least contact.

    we are given you six months to perform. You are the highest paid coach in Ghana, so no talking. Your first three matches is what is going to determine whether to stay or not.

    This is strange and rubbish. As a club, we have never been able to do any serious signings historically. Since the days of Osei Kufour, Charles Taylor among others, we have always gone in for the 'leftovers' after Kotoko and others have exhausted the market, hence our abysmal performance for years now. We have to learn from Real Madrid, Man City, Barca etc who win laurels because they recruit the best. Herbert Please save your job and bring us to the stadium to watch the best of talents. We are simply fed up with players from relegated clubs and other average players. Hearts deserves the best players if we want to reclaim our position in Ghana soccer.
