Head coach of the Hearts of Oak Sporting Club, Aboubakar Ouattara is on a mission to restore the past glory of the club after taking over from Martinus Koopman this month.

According to him, Hearts is one of the biggest football clubs in Africa and thereby his resolve to restore the club where they truly belong.

“One of the biggest clubs in Africa but the people are bringing this team to the lower level… I can never accept it.”

After their abysmal showpiece in the first round of the Ghana Premier League (GPL) which saw them trailing to the 11th position on the league log, the club seems to have bounced back stronger.

Coach Ouatarra’s first assignment with the club saw their resounding victory over Real Tamale United (RTU) at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Ivorian intends to build the club and restore its past glory.

“We are going to try to build hearts of Oak to its past glory,” he said after the Phobia’s 3-0 win over RTU.

On how he intends to achieve this, he commented, “Only hard work.”

A brace by Hamza Issah in both halves and a goal by Enock Asubonteng sealed the victory for the Accra-based club in their first game in the second round of the GPL on February 25.

The victory moved them to the ninth place on the league table.

However, critics say the result cannot be used to assess the new coach since RTU had been internally challenged and ill-prepared for the game.

Hearts will face Nsoatreman on Friday in match week 19.
