Randy Abbey is planning major managerial and structural changes at Heart of Lions following his takeover of the Premier League side.

The Ghana FA Executive Committee member is reported to have acquired 70 percent stake to become the majority shareholder of the Kpando-based club.

The new boss who declares himself a ‘Lion’ wants to improve the club’s infrastructure while administering the club along modern managerial lines.

Abbey says his vision for the club is focused more on youth development to ultimately feed into a future dream first team.

“We want to lay down proper structural and managerial foundation for the club to ensure it becomes a viable business in the long term” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“These are middle to long term goals of the new direction which will be primarily focused on youth development.

“I even enjoy watching the youth side more than the senior team so that is where the focus will be while giving opportunities to the younger talents.

“We will also want to ensure we package the club befitting its status to draw in even more investment.”

Heart of Lions have moved to third at the restart of the Ghanaian top flight but the club’s new chief refuses to be overly carried away by early prospects shown by the team.

“It is early days yet to count the benefits of this takeover due to the team’s improved position in the league,” he adds.

“We have played just one match and the takeover was done during the break and like I said before we are looking more to long term structural changes rather than instant results on the field of play.

“I mean if the results come ahead of schedule then fine but it is not something of a priority at this point.”

Abbey acquired the reported majority shares originally from then-President Victor Ahiakpor who is reportedly maintaining his 30 percent stake in the club.

The ex Hearts of Oak management member had stints with Kessben FC and then eventually with Medeama before his takeover at Heart of Lions.
