‘I Disagree With You, There Is No Fatigue In Hearts’ Players’ – Charles Taylor

Ex Hearts Of Oak attacking midfielder Charles Bismark Taylor has stated that he totally disagrees with coach Samuel Boadu for saying that there is tiredness in his players; thereby causing their defeat to Obuasi based AshantiGold on match day Four of the ongoing Ghana Premier League match at Len Clay stadium.

While reacting to a question during an interview at Asempa FM, that Hearts Of Oak player needs to lift their performance, Charles Taylor stated that; “I disagree with coach Samuel Boadu for saying fatigue has set in his team. There was all the time on this world for Hearts of Oak to prepare to participate in the interclub competitions and the Premier League. That doesn’t mean the players should be worn-out. The players are rather swollen headed because they get complements from their supporters in their neighborhood”. 

“That is where the performance of the players begin depreciating; it’s because they have chilly friends. People will be giving them money, which they haven’t seen before”, Charles Taylor further stated. 

“These kind of things makes players not to be serious at training. The ball the players played yesterday tells us that the players thought they had achieved it all in life”, the ex-Hearts has Kotoko player stated.  

He further explained that the performance of the players won’t affect the coach. Rather, it will affect the players because the coach knows these are the players he will be using for his game. 

“In our days, we used to participate in all competitions; but we still gave out our greatest for Heart of Oak. I will not buy into the accession that the players are exhausted because after the departure of Benjamin Affutu they have signed a lot of players”. 

“So is the coach telling us that he doesn’t have confidence in these players? If he says there is fatigue, then he should point out those players who are not groggy. This is not the type of game Hearts Of Oak played the past season, and you will not see trustworthiness in them. Now each player is playing what he likes in the team set up”, he concluded.

The defending champions, Hearts Of Oak haven’t won in their last four matches; they have drawn three and lost a match to the “Miners”. 

Coach Samuel Boadu had promised his supporters that the team will find their rhythm from week four which they fail to do. 

Hearts have come under intensive pressure from the supporters for not recording a single win in their last seven Premier Leagues games after beating their biggest rivals, Kumasi Asante Kotoko last season.
