Former Hearts of Oak chairman Harry Zakour has suggested Hearts’ long drought is down to the absence of ‘mafia’.
He suggested the local giants need an important “mafia infiltration” to end a long wait for a Ghana Premier League crown.
The former football administrator who is now into politics suggests the club needs to use “unorthodox” methods to clinch the league title.
The Phobians have not won the title since 2009 which has sparked a wave of criticism and attack on the club’s majority shareholder Togbe Afede XIV.
However, the club’s celebrated former chairman Harry Zakour, who led the side to clinch the Africa Champions League in 2000, is advocating for the infiltration of “mafia and tycoons” to help the side end to return to their successful days.
“Accra Hearts of Oak has totally changed. I am not saying Togbe is not doing well. He is okay! I think he is doing his best,” he said
“He has bought them a bus. I bought the secretariat in my time and I bought them the old bus they were using and the Pobiman land, we bought it with the late Frank Sowah in my time. I was his vice when we bought that land.
” And I think he is building something over there and I won’t say he is doing badly.
“But, you see, football administration is a different thing altogether. It’s not done like a normal business.
“You must have some mafias and tycoons in there to help you win.”
