Former Hearts of Oak coach Mohammed Polo has linked the club’s current continental feat to his tactical investment while at post.
According to the ‘Dribbling Magician’, his direct involvement in the player recruitment exercise of the club a few years ago accounted for the team’s rise in the CAF Confederations Cup campaign.
Hearts, drawn against Tunisian giants Esperance for the Group stages decider, until their 0-1 slip to Djoliba of Mali, had a resplendent run, dispatching all their opponents with ease.
Polo said in an interview, ‘I have been very much impressed by the team’s progress in Africa.
‘These are the players I brought to the club and so you can see that Hearts is benefitting from my hard work.
‘But that is the world today, some benefit from others’ toil.’
Polo was in charge until he became unpopular midway the 2012/13 season, giving way to David Duncan, who also exited for Herbert Addo.
Hearts will travel to Tunisia in the weekend of May 15 to 17 for the first leg, and host the North Africans later.
