Yaw Preko vows to change mentality of players' before Dwarfs game

Published on: 01 September 2016

Newly appointed interim coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Yaw Preko declared his displeasure at his players’ body language in his first training session.

Preko was elevated from his assistant coaching role of the club to an interim coach after the demotion of head trainer, Sergio Traguil Daniel to the club’s feeder side Auroras FC, for non-performance in his nine-match tenure.

And in his first training session as interim coach of the club yesterday, Yaw Preko assured fans that his players’ body demeanor will change before the GPL resumes as the team begins stern preparation for the last three games of the league.

“The players’ body language is something that we have talked about. It is something that we have to work on because we still have less time to do that. I’m sure that by next week before the Dwarfs game, we’ll be ready, “Preko said.

He was then asked by reporters whether his team will go for the kill in the final three games after the supporters’ front of the club threatened to abandon their games amid management instability.

“The fans should not lose hope. This is Accra Hearts of Oak, and our motto is “Never Say Die” and we’re aware that we’ve performed below our level, “he said.

“They should support and come in their numbers and they should bring the Hearts of Oak spirit in these last three games and I believe if they come in their numbers to ginger the boys, they will also get the best out of the boys.”

“I believe with the good support of the fans, and I’ve seen Hearts of Oak when it comes to support from the fans and how far they can go and take them. And I want to tell them to s that support,” Preko concluded.

Hearts of Oak will host Ebusua Dwarfs at the Accra sports stadium when the league resumes and hope for a win in boosting their ambition of winning the Ghana Premier League.
