TT Brothers Chides Hearts

Isaac Tetteh


Former Hearts of Oak top executive, Isaac Tetteh, widely known as TT Brothers, has criticised the club’s current management for terminating coach Samuel Boadu’s contract ahead of their Champions League campaign.

The Uncle T United FC president’s worry was Hearts management’s failure finding a suitable replacement; with their continental assignment against AS Bamako few days ahead.

Last weekend, Hearts lost the first leg of their CAF Confederations Cup tie 0-3 to the Malian side, and that, coupled with the club’s recent poor run, have stoked heated debate among members from the Phobian fraternity.

To TT Brothers, the club’s top hierarchy should have factored in a lot of things, particularly the timing before ending their contract with Boadu.

He said, “This is quite worrying but I would not blame anyone but the management of the club for the troubles they are suffering. Look at the timing of coach Boadu’s sacking, it was not the right time and till now I’m very hurt that coach Boadu wasn’t the man to lead the Phobians into Africa.

“Sometimes we say when players become used to a particular coach’s tactics, it has advantages and disadvantages. A mutual understanding between the said coach and players at that particular moment existed, so going into Africa, coach Samuel Boadu should have been the best person to lead the team.”

The TT Brothers Managing Director added, “I was one of the individuals who pushed for him to be given a five-year contract so we could see what he could also do when the team goes to Africa. Look at the problems facing the club at the moment, it is sad.”

Hearts hosts their Malian counterparts this weekend in Accra, and would be hoping to overturn the 0-3 deficit to advance to the next stage of the competition.
