Ghana's No. 1

Hearts of Oak NCC throws weight behind under-fire coach Samuel Boadu

Published on: 09 December 2021

Hearts of Oak National Chapters Committee (NCC) have issued a statement backing Samuel Boadu amid calls for the coach to be fired because of the club's woeful African campaign.

Boadu has come under pressure after his side suffered another embarrassing defeat in North Africa last Sunday. They were beaten 4-0 by JS Saoura in Algeria a month after 6-1 drubbing against Wydad Casablanca in Morocco saw them exit the CAF Champions League.

Hearts took a 2-0 advantage to Algeria but an absolutely poor display ensured a battering and exit from Africa on a disappointing note.

Meanwhile, they have been a pale shadow of themselves on the local scene, starting their title defence poorly with no win in four games and are languishing at the bottom.

These have led to calls from some quarters for the management to change Boadu who in August ended their league title drought and added the MTN FA Cup.

However, NCC strongly disagrees. In their statement signed by Chairman Mr Elvis Herman, they urged the club's teeming supporters to calm down and trust Boadu to turn things around.

“The NCC of Accra Hearts of Oak wishes to apologize to our cherished supporters and sympathizers for the team’s Unfortunate and painful exit from the CAF Confederation Cup competition coupled with our poor start in the ongoing Ghana premier league which has created some level of tension in the team and amongst supporters.

“We, therefore, entreat our supporters to remain calm and tolerant of our coach, technical team, and playing body as they navigate this storm. The NCC and the Majority of our Supporters still believe in the abilities of our Head Coach Samuel Boadu who against all odds led the team to win the treble in the domestic league last season.

“This moment is one of the vicissitudes of life and we shall overcome. We further urge our supporters to continue the unwavering support to the Club at these difficult times,” the statement said.

Hearts will arrive in Ghana on Friday from Algeria.
