Former board member of troubled Accra Hearts of Oak, Fawaz Zawk has called on the Togbe Afede-led administration to consider bringing some of the former management members on board to work for the collective success of the club.

The troubled former African champions have been struggling to win a major silverware since 2009 and nearly went to relegation last season.

The former board and management members insists that an old dog cannot learn new tricks and for that matter the old management members will be in a better position to move the club to the level they aspire to be.

“I think what the new administration can do is to bring some of the former board and management members together to work for the club,” Fawaz Zawk said in an interview with Otec FM in Kumasi.

He advised the Togbe Afede-led board should swallow their pride and extend invitation to the former members to guide the club’s success.

“The new administration should just swallow their pride, agree that they have made some mistakes and come to the old executives to ensure the club moves in a prosperous direction.”

Fawaz Zawk who was a member of the management that won the 2000 CAF Champions League trophy added that he can only help the club when given the opportunity but can do less otherwise.

“But we cannot just come to the club that we want to make changes. I am now in Lebanon and if I am asked to come to Ghana to help Hearts of Oak, I will come. But the new executives must delegate responsibilities. If I am given an executive position, that is where I can effect changes in the club but not when I am considered an outsider,” he added.
