Hearts of Oak CEO, Frederick Moore, has revealed that the club’s board with the help of the club’s majority shareholder, Togbe Afede XIV, are working on making their academy one that can rival the best in the world.
In August last year, Hearts of Oak signed an agreement with Turkish Construction firm Prefabex for the construction of the club’s academy, Pobiman, and Moore revealed in an interview with KumasiFM his belief that the academy could lead the club to further glories.
“I am very confident Hearts of Oak will start winning trophies soon. We are building one of the best academies that will ravel any academy in the world. We are lucky we have got a board chairman [Togbe Afede XIV] who has a vision, foresight and a master plan with Pobiman”
He also stressed that the club nicknamed ”continental club masters” can not be waved taking into consideration the past glories the club achieved.
“We are still the continental club masters. We have been reviewing how we have not won a trophy close to a decade but some of the big clubs in the world have also gone a long time without a tittle a league. The most important thing is that we have got one of the best board chairmen, a good board and good players.”
“The continental club masters cannot be taken from us because of what we have done in the past. With the consistency at the top, I think we are now on the road to bigger things” he further stated
“There have been changes but every change that has happened is because we want to move forward and for a good reason. With the foundation we’ve built, I am very confident that very soon what people will see, they will marvel.”
Reports coming in suggest that construction works for the Pobiman Academy Project is currently underway.
