Former Accra Hearts of Oak captain and one-time league goal king, Mahatma Otoo, has called for unity in the club ahead of the upcoming season.
The fine striker’s call comes at the time Hearts are going through rough times in the history of the club.

The poor performance exhibited by the club, according to some followers, was down to disunity among the hierarchy of the club and poor technical decisions by the coaching staff.
Mahatma, who left the shores of the country at the end of the 2013-2014 season after winning the top scorer award, wants the leadership of the club to unite and forge ahead to win laurels for the club.
