Fatawu Mohammed - We will help the new players to settle

Deputy captain of Accra Hearts of Oak Fatawu Mohammed says he will do all he can to help the new players in the team settle quickly. 

Hearts signed 11 new players and promoted two from Auroras, the U20 side of the club, for the 2017/18 season. 

And Fatawu, who’s amongst the longest serving players in the team, reveals helping the new players to settle is part of his off-field role. 

“I have been in this situation before and I know what one has to do to help a colleague settle in the team,” the deputy Hearts captain told accraheartsofoaksc.com

“When you join Hearts, it is a good feeling but if you are able to settle and develop good relationship with the rest of the team, it makes things much easier and you feel at home straight away. 

“I am trying to help the new players settle down as quickly as possible so that nobody feels like an outsider. That process has gone smoothly for some of the new players and I hope that will help them to give their all when the tough job begins.”

Hearts will play as guests of Techiman XI Wonders this Sunday and the defender insists the team must start well. 

“For the second season running, we are starting the season away from home,” Fatawu continued. “Last year, we played Inter Allies but we drew the game but I am hoping we go one better this time around to beat XI Wonders on Sunday.”
