The former box-to-box midfielder believes the Phobians will improve next season after going nine seasons without a trophy

Former Hearts of Oak midfielder Adjah Tetteh has admitted that the club's run without a major trophy in the last decade has been a major concern of several stakeholders.

The Phobians last won the Ghana Premier League title in 2009 and finished third last season with 48 points, nine points behind winners Aduana Stars. The Accra-based team also lost the FA Cup final 3-1 to bitter rivals Asante Kotoko.

However, Tetteh believes Frank Elliott Nuttall's charges will end their poor run in the upcoming campaign.

“I am very sad that Hearts of Oak have not won the league in almost a decade,” Tetteh told Zylofon FM.

“But the performances have been improving in the last few years so hopefully things will improve in the upcoming season [so that they can win the title once again].

“To me, there have been some difficulties, there have been problems within the club but I believe the team will be successful this year so that the supporters will be happy once again,” he added.

Tetteh, 38, was part of the Phobians squad that won the Ghana Premier League title on six consecutive seasons as well as the Caf Champions League in 2000.
