Hearts chief Mortagbe refuses to concede league title to rivals Kotoko

Hearts of Oak chief Neil Armstrong Mortagbe insists the side aims at winning the Premier League title despite their recent slump.

The Phobians have fallen behind in their title chase since the surprise dismissal of coach David Duncan.

And despite a flying start under Mohammed Polo, Hearts have slipped to third and now seven points behind leaders Asante Kotoko.

The Phobians finished the first round of the Ghanaian top flight with a crashing 3-0 defeat at Wa All Stars and then suffered an early exit from the FA Cup to lowly Gold Stars.

The recent slumps have got many revising their pre-season targets – with critics suggesting there is no way Hearts can wrestle back the Premier League title from rivals Asante Kotoko.

But Managing Director Mortagbe remains defiant of Hearts title chances and believes his side can overturn the seven point deficit in the second half of the season.

“The target has not changed; we are still restoring Phobian glory,” he told Metro FM.

“We said that it is a three year project but we believe there is an opportunity to win the league title.

“Seven points is not a difference that we can’t overhaul.

“We will just remain focused on our games, do our best to win our games and see what happens on the other side.”

    Keep dreaming, I’m a phobia fun but changing coaches like ur shoes is not gonna help the team progress, as for nyaho tamakloe I cannot pinpoint his contribution to the phobian family for the last couple of yrs but talks too much, and pls mr togbe chairman, do ur administrative work and stop influencing in team selection….unless u want the coaches job too
