Former Hearts of Oak talisman Bernard Don Bortey says the club must emulate rivals Asante Kotoko by allowing ex-players get closer to the club.
In an interview with Kumasi-based Otec FM, Don Bortey said former players of the club can play an influential role in helping the team revive its glory days.
"Hearts of Oak should have done what Kotoko SC is doing now because the club was established for the people, you have legends who won laurels for the club. They have what it takes to inculcate into players," he said.
"In my playing days, I met Osei Kuffour who really had an impact in my career, so is the arrival of Daniel Nii Adjei at Kotoko SC, it will have positives passed to the young ones since he has a lot of career recognition to show", he added.
"Hearts of Oak should give chance to their legends who are active in Football to help the current crop of players", he concluded.
