Ex-Ghana international Yaw Preko says Hearts will be under massive pressure to reclaim the Premier League crown.
The Phobians are desperate to win the title this term after playing catch-ups to emerging forces like Aduana Stars and Berekum Chelsea as well as rivals Kotoko in the past three years.
Hearts have been impressive in the off-season and their fans will hope it will translate into the upcoming season.
But their former winger insists the club will have to pull the chest nut from the blazing fire to realize their dream.
“I’ve not been to their training grounds, I’ve not watched any of their pre-season friendly matches and I so I can’t say much about the squad but the pressure is on them.” Preko told 90 Minutes newspaper
“Aduana Stars, Berekum Chelsea and Kotoko have won the past 3 seasons and I can’t see Hearts going four years without winning the league.
“The challenge between Hearts and Kotoko fans is that if one wins this year, then next year the other have to win.
“So they are under pressure but I guess they should take it easy, and take it match after match.”
Hearts will open their Premier League account with a tricky tie at Tema Youth on October 7.
