Hearts of Oak Chief Executive Fred Crentsil faces an uncertain future as speculation continues to mount on his future.
The former Sekondi Hasaacas chief has not entirely won the Hearts fans over since his appointment.
The club’s failure to win the Ghana Premier League and the FA Cup despite the huge capital injection has set the rumour mill in motion, with reports in the Ghanaian media claiming he has lost favour with a cross section of the supporters.
It’s widely reported that the top hierarchy of the 2000 African Champions is sharply divided on the future of the Hearts chief with others calling for his contract to be terminated.
He has reportedly also lost favour with a cross section of the club’s supporters who believe he lacks the managerial skills to handle the giants.
Local media has also claimed the club’s inability to attract massive sponsorship despite their huge support base has made him unpopular.
Their arch-rivals Kotoko continue to attract huge sponsorship deals from corporate Ghana.
Crentsil expressed his desire to make the former African champions find their feet whilst promising massive transformation but some of their fans are despondent after they ended the season without silverware.
The Chairman and majority shareholder Togbe Afede XIV has promised to spend big in the transfer market to bring in quality players to augment their ahead of next season but that has not sound convincing to some of their teeming followers.
