A former board member of Accra Hearts of Oak, Stephen Akwetey, insists the club requires a technical reinforcement as they battle for survival in the Premier League.

The Phobians are in a fight of their lives as relegation stares them threateningly with only six matches to draw the curtains down on the season.

Alhaji Hearts and Ernest Quarshie have joined forces with the club in a bid to salvage the club.

Akwetey contended in an interview with the Daily Graphic in Accra yesterday that the Phobians technical bench as it was currently composed was not strong enough to withstand the turbulence that confronted the team.

He recalled a situation when the late Coach Cecil Jones Attuquayefio was invited to provide technical assistance to the bench during a crucial qualifier for the 2007 CAF Champions League.

It worked and we secured qualification to play in the money zone. At this stage in the club’s history Hearts needs all hands on deck”, he added.
