Former Hearts of Oak chief Harry Zakour has taken a swipe at his former club over the inability of the current management to sign top and quality players.

The Phobians over the years have failed to sign top and emerging stars in the domestic league unlike before when it was home to the 'Crème de la crème' of Ghana football.

Zakour during his stint with the club was able to assemble one of the best squads to win the CAF Champions League title and multiple Ghana Premier League titles. An achievement he credits to good recruitment.

According to him, arch-rivals Asante Kotoko are currently doing better in in terms of recruitment than Hearts of Oak seeing them with all the best players in the league at the moment.

"When I look today and what is happening, I heard a player was suspended and If look at recruitment where Hearts is, it has gone down now", he said in an interview.

"If you look at Asante Kotoko their recruitment is doing well. They have a committee where they recruit", he added.

Asante Kotoko under the administration of its Chief Executive Officer Nana Yaw Ampomsah has signed two foreign players from Brazil, Fabio Gama and Michael Vinicius to strengthen their squad for the 2020/21 season.

The team recently cashed in on former striker Kwame Poku who has joined Algerian side MC Algiers.

Poku was recruited from Division One side Nkoranza Warriors.

In recent times most top players in the domestic league tend to opt for Asante Kotoko instead of Hearts of Oak a trend that is still going.
