The 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season was one filled with a lot of hope and optimism for Hearts of Oak fans.

The belief was that the club could finally conjure some magic to win their first league title in more than 10 years.


The season hasn’t been smooth sailing for the Phobians as the resignation of Kosta Papic means that the Phobians have now had three different coaches after just three months.


Joy Sports’ Owuraku Ampofo believes that the current situation of the club means that Hearts of Oak might find themselves in a relegation battle.

“Currently, Hearts of Oak are closer to the relegation zone (3 points) than leaders Karela United (8) in the Ghana Premier League this season. So it is not far-fetched if I say the Phobians could see themselves in a relegation scrap.”

“For a club that hadn’t won the league title for more than 10 years, I expected some something had to be done differently to get back to the top. Proper planning and execution is how big clubs usually rise from slumps. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case for Hearts.”

Nii Odoom took charge of the club on an interim basis in December 2019 following the sacking of Kim Grant. It was no secret Hearts wanted a new coach heading into the 2020/21 season. Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto was appointed but left just 7 days after.

Hearts then had to stick to Odoom with just two weeks to the start of the season as the search for a new coach continued. A couple of weeks into the new season, Hearts of Oak appointed Kosta Papic.

Ampofo added: “Papic wasn’t happy with the board to and the Serbian describes the situation at the club as “I have no hope that it’s going to change.” If the man who masterminded your last league title says these words then you should know there is big trouble.”

“The relegation battle looks like an unusual one with clubs such as Berekum Chelsea, AshGold, Sharks, Liberty and Legon Cities around the drop. These clubs do have what it takes to climb out and are gradually building momentum,” he concluded.

In a week, the Phobians have lost their head coach, assistant coach Asare Bediako and goalkeeper’s trainer George Owu. The team will be now coached by U-15 coach, Samuel Nii Noi. Players are demotivated and with the lack of a structure evident now, a relegation battle might become reality.
