Accra Hearts of Oak deputy coach, Ben Adjei, has attributed his side’s revival in the second round of the Glo Premier League to tenacity of purpose and hard work.

Adjei, a member of the famous ‘Musical Youth’, has revealed that  the below average first round performance which dragged the team to the relegation zone has been a source motivation to turn things around in the second round.

And their sterling performance in the last few weeks- going past five games without defeat is a testament of their quest to play in the Top 4 competition.

The deputy manager believes Hearts of Oak being Ghana’s Premier club, and taking into account its pedigree both on the local front and on the continent  does not merit the position it occupies currently on the league log-eleventh.

‘It’s been hardwork. If you set targets you ensure that you meet them, and that is exactly what we are doing currently,’ he said on Happy FM yesterday.

‘Any team could comfortably sit at where we are on the league table, but not Hearts, we don’t deserve to be where we are currently.

‘We are targeting to play in the Top 4, and everything points to the fact that we are on course and not that we have consulted a soothsayer.

‘It is raining but we can’t afford to forgo the training,’ he added.

Hearts have accumulated 26 points and are placed eleventh with ten matches remaining in the country’s top flight league.
