Hearts of Oak praised for ending nomadic training regime

Sports journalist Saddick Adams has praised the Ghana Premier League giants Hearts of Oak for ending their nomadic training regime by constructing their training facilities.

The Phobians are close to completing their Pobiman training complex, which has almost every necessary facility to host any team in the world.

Months ago, the 2000 CAF Champions League, 2001 CAF Super Cup, and 2004 CAF Confederation Cup winners were roaming from St. Thomas Aquinas School Park to Legon Ajax Park to hold their training sessions before games.

Now, the record Ghanaian FA Cup winners and second most successful Ghana league winners train at their own facilities, with new equipment being added every day.

Hearts of Oak have a natural training pitch, an artificial turf, a swimming pool, and other amenities.

Reacting to the progress, Saddick Adams posted pictures from their training, lauding them for the development.

"Few years ago, Accra Hearts of Oak were gallivanting looking for a place to train. Was embarrassing," he wrote on Twitter.

"Today they can afford to train on different types of pitches they own and it’s common to notice new training equipment brought in every week. Progress."
