Ex Hearts of Oak management member Isaac Tetteh has told Chief Executive Neil Armstrong Mortagbe to stay in the job and return the club to its glory days rather than quit amidst brewing pressure from the fans.

The Hearts chief has come under intense pressure from the fans following the side’s poor form in the Ghana Premier League.

The Phobians beat Bechem United 2-1 on Sunday to break a three-game losing streak.

And though Hearts remain in contention to finish second to earn a return to the CAF Champions League, majority of the supporters remain unhappy with the team’s dodgy performance with just four games to the end of the campaign.

Some irate supporters have called on the chief executive officer to quit but ex management member Isaac Tetteh insists Neil Armstrong Mortagbe must stay on to turn things around.

“He is doing his best but then I am sure he has come to learn that things are hard within,” he told Metro FM.

“When he was a supporter he thought things were rosy when we were in charge but now he is feeling the pinch.

“At the start of the season he said he will win the league but it appears he will not achieve this.

“But he shouldn’t runaway, he should remain there and fix it but must be guided by the promises he makes because he is not God.”

Hearts remain third on the Ghana Premier League log despite being even on points with second-placed Heart of Lions.
