Hearts of Oak versatile midfielder Stephen Tetteh insists the Phobians will not throw away their composure despite the current turbulence in the club.
Despite without being with the inspirational David Duncan, Hearts managed to sneak past Amidaus Professionals 1-0 at the Tema Park in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.
Hearts fans are unhappy about the board’s decision to terminate the appointment of David Duncan as head coach and threatened to prevent the team from playing in Tema if the former Ghana U17 trainer was not restored.
While the board is still locked in discussions with fans who want the coach back, the Ghana Football Association issued a sanction, banning the 20-time Ghana Premier League title-winners from the Accra Sports Stadium indefinitely.
But Tetteh who has played a crucial role in Hearts’ campaign insists Hearts shall not be distracted by the current happenings and they will continue to challenge for the league title.
“Our job is to play the ball on the pitch while the board, management and fans get the issue resolved. We went into the game with a different spirit after seeing Duncan in the stands,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
We want to win the title this season for the fans and we have seen that they are ready to give us the backing through hard time. That is all we need.”
Tetteh has played in all of Hearts last six games since returning from injury.
