All Stars’ Chief Executive Samuel Oduro-Nyarko says the Hearts of Oak team appears out of sort due to the lack of cohesion.
The Wa-based side inflicted more misery on the Phobians with a shocking 2-1 win on Wednesday.
The defeat at the Accra Sports Stadium was Hearts’ second straight loss in this season’s Premier League.
The Rainbow Boys failed to translate their superior ball possession into creating enough goal scoring opportunities and were found badly wanting before their home fans.
Many have criticised the quality of Hearts’ recruitment drive during the off-season – with the critics insisting players bought are far below Hearts’ standards.
But Oduro-Nyarko who has done a fantastic job especially with player signings considering the shoestring budget he is allocated at All Stars believes Hearts’ technical team and players ought to work towards team cohesion in order to reverse the early season slump.
“You can tell clearly that this is not the Hearts of Oak of old times,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“They lack cohesion and are not playing like a team and therefore they will always have problems playing against a very good side like we have proved today (Wednesday).
“It is not all about their coach, the players also have to help the coaches.”
Hearts appear to be heading towards another defeat when they travel to face in-form Berekum Chelsea who are desperate to get back to winning ways after they also lost in midweek to Medeama.
