I don’t panic as an experienced coach – Heart of Lions boss Bashir Hayford

Published on: 16 May 2024

Heart of Lions head coach, Bashir Hayford, says he does not panic despite the precarious situation of the club in the Ghana Premier League.

He took up the job of coaching the tea when they were bottom of the league and without a win after 14 matches.

"As an experienced coach, you need not panic in any situation of a team. You must make sure you do your best,” Hayford told Joy Sports.

Heart of Lions are now second from bottom on the table with 32 points, just one away from safety.

"Many people advised me not to [take the job]. I accepted it on the basis of trying to prove a point that no condition is totally disoriented, you can resurrect some issues,” he added.

The club had just eight points from 13 games played, lost five and drew eight times when they appointed Hayford

The appointment of Hayford came a week after Fatawu Salifu was dismissed with the club hoping to turn their season around under the former Legon Cities gaffer.
