The wait for a Hearts manager has gone on for too long according to Jambos midfielder Loic Damour.
The Frenchman arrived at Tynecastle during the summer from Cardiff City. Two months on from Craig Levein bringing him to Tynecastle though and Levein was out the door, facing the axe in October.
It’s now over four and a half weeks since his departure and still there isn’t anyone new at the helm. That isn’t good enough in Damour’s eyes.
He told the Daily Record (page 45, 04/12/19): “We’ve waited for too long. It’s been five weeks or something like that, so it’s too long. There’s been no information for players, for staff, for everybody. It’s hard when you don’t know.
“It’s not an excuse to be s**t on the pitch – I’m not saying that – but obviously it’s harder to prepare for games. It’s not ideal so it is good to feel the situation is changing. “It’s my first situation like this. I lost a manager when I was young but not for five weeks.”
It shows on the pitch for Hearts
Damour says the period has been unsettling for the team and no wonder. Whilst they remain without a leader, the results are continuing to get worse.
Just as things started to look a bit brighter with a 5-2 win over St Mirren, the Jambos were brought down to earth with 3-0 and 5-0 defeats to Kilmarnock and Rangers.
They need a new man to come in and fast as they continue to spiral down the league. They’re in tenth spot and joint-bottom heading into a crucial home clash with Livingston.
More than anything, Damour just want the manager hell Hearts are enduring to be over.
