The Phobians chief has charged the playing body and technical team to improve ahead of the Super Clash

Hearts of Oak managing director Mark Noonan has admitted not being happy with the club's slow start to the new Ghana Premier League season, ahead of their crucial game against rivals Asante Kotoko on Sunday.

The Phobians boast of just one win in their last five games. They last won the topflight title nine seasons ago.

“We have to perform better in the Ghana Premier League than this,” Noonan told Citi Sports.

“A club like Hearts of Oak should be doing better [especially ahead of our game against Kotoko] since we have a lot of ambitions to achieve,” he added.

Noonan also hinted that Hearts will appoint a new coach if interim handler Henry Wellington and his assistant Edward Nii Odoom fail to live up to the expectations.

“The current head coach is on an interim deal and he has to prove himself going forward. There is a constant evaluation of him and his assistant's work so they will have to prove themselves if they want the job full time,” he said.

Hearts are occupying 11th position with 11 points, six behind leaders Ashanti Gold.
