Former Accra Hearts of Oak manager, Mohammed Polo has bemoaned the lack of time he was given at the club. He also bragged that he could have built a much better side than the ’64 battalions’
Hearts of Oak dominated the local scene and conquered the continent after winning the CAF Champions League, the CAF super cup and CAF Confederations Cup between 2000-2005 with their squad popularly known by most Ghanaians as ’64 Battalions’.
According to Mohammed Polo, he could have built a much better team than the ’64 battalions’ if he was given much time to work.
“Look at Sir Cecil Jones Attuquayefio, how many years did he use to win the African Cup. I could build a better team than that,” he told Pulse.com.gh
“I am telling you. I could develop a team that when you see them playing you will marvel. It is a challenge. A record is there and somebody must break the record. If you have the vim. He has done his and we have seen it and up till now they are showing their football.”
The 64 battalions had the likes of Charles Taylor, Don Bortey, Ishmael Addo, Emmanuel Osei Kuffour etc.
Mohammed Polo managed Hearts of Oak between 2013-2014.
