Former Hearts of Oak midfielder, Joe Tagoe, aka Bobby Short, has said the quality of players at Hearts of Oak has dropped compared to his playing days for the Phobian club.
The pint-sized midfielder left the Phobians for Nigerian side Sharks of Port Harcourt but has returned to the country after his contract expired and is nursing an ankle injury.
Speaking to Class Sports, Tagoe said the current crop of players at Hearts were driven by money and were not committed to the club.
“Any good player of the club wants to go to Europe because they want money, but during our time at the club, every player was dedicated to the cause of the club because of its attractive nature. That is why you could see high quality in the team at that time,” he told Class Sports.
Hearts of Oak have slipped from the top spot of the Ghana Premier League and are now second with 39 points, two points behind leaders Wa All Stars.
