The dismissed coach sheds light on what accounted for the Phobians' bad results under his watch

Immediate-past Hearts of Oak coach Henry Wellington believes he is not the cause of the club's woes in the Ghana Premier League.

The coach received his marching orders last week following the side's poor run of form in the topflight.

The Phobians currently sit one place above the relegation zone after the first round of the season, having won just four of 14 games played thus far. 

“Handling Hearts of Oak was not a difficult task but after doing all in training, you need luck to get results," Wellington told Happy FM

"Change in results would prove whether I was the problem or not.

“I wanted to resign when the results were not coming and people were abusing me verbally but I stayed on because of the club owner.

“The players have started picking my strategies and are playing very well and I hope they can continue like that in the second round."

Hearts have also drawn five times this season, losing five other matches.

Wellington was brought on board in February following the dismissal of Scottish coach Frank Nuttall. 

Under-20s coach Seth Hoffman has been tasked to lead the Phobians in the interim.
