Former Hearts of Oak defender Larry Ibrahim Sumaila believes the lack of managerial consistency at his former club is a major reason why the team have failed to get results in recent seasons.
Sumaila has said his opinion following the dismissal of Martin Koopman. The Dutch trainer recorded 2 wins , draws and 2 defeats at the start of the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League season with Hearts of Oak placed at position number 11 on 12 points after Week 10.
“When coaches come and go, it’s a bit sad because sometimes it slows the performance of the club and the team and as a player,” he told Accra-based Radio Gold.
“You know every player and how he adapts to a coach so maybe a coach comes in, a player may adapt to a coach’s playing style, and he will be performing very well and excellent.
“But immediately the coach is sacked or gone, the coach that comes in, he doesn’t tune to the coach so it makes his performance a little bit down.
“So it takes the team down a little bit but as a player, all you have to do is tune your mind and know what you have to do because it is your work.
“You know what you want so when a new coach comes in, you have to give him your mind and your all then you just adapt to his playing then you are good to go,” he added.
