Former Hearts of Oak chief, Harry Zakkuor has stated that the one man show policy by the current board chairman of the club Togbe Afede XIV is the reason for the club’s poor recruitment this season.

Zakour’s era as the Chairman of the Oak Family saw the club wooing top class players like Charles Taylor, Don Bortey and Luiz Agyemang, while maintaining the likes of Emmanuel Osei Kuffour, Ishmael Addo, Jacob Nartey et al.

The current administration has been very silent in the transfer market with the fans calling for the signing of big name players to give the club a new look.

And Zakour who steered the leadership of the club for close to a decade says the current administration lacks what it takes to lure stars into the team.

In recounting some of their strategies of getting the stars during his reign, Zakour recalled that the board and management members at that time had the team at heart and went the extra mile of visiting the players, dinning and whining with them to create a very good relationship.

“It is not like our days when we had Nii Ayitey Bonte, Alhaji Hearts and Fiifi Forson. But that is not what is happening in the club now.”

“In our time, we sit with the players, eat with them, talk to them and even when they are in camp we visit them before playing their games. But today it’s not like that, nobody visit them at the camp,” Zakuor recounted in an interview with Boss FM in Kumasi.

Harry Zakour’s reign as the Chairman of the Phobians saw the club winning the CAF Champions League, the CAF Super Cup as well as winning six consecutive league trophies.
