Head coach of Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu has said that, the club’s 2020/21 league triumph should spur him on to work harder rather than rest on his oars.
The 35-year-old tactician led the Phobians to end their 11-year trophy drought after a 1-1 draw against Liberty Professionals in their penultimate game at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Boadu joined the Phobians mid-way through the first half of the league season after the departure of Serb, Kosta Papic.
He has steered the Rainbow club to 13-wins without defeat in all competitions, culminating in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League glory.
The former Medeama SC trainer said, after Hearts won their first ever trophy in over a decade.
“I will make sure I will not be swollen headed. I will make sure I work extra.
“This is a motivational cup or winning so it will prepare me to go higher and higher.” Samuel Boadu said.
Salifu Ibrahim sent in a first half corner which was well connected by Daniel Afriyie Barnieh for the Phobians opener.
There were no goals until three minutes to full time before Paul Kwame drew Liberty Professionals level to peg the entire game at 1-1.
Hearts of Oak sit top of the league log with 61 points, four points better than Kotoko with a final match against WAFA on Sunday, July 18 to clear.
Result from that game is insignificant as the Phobians have now clinched their 21st league title and will represent Ghana in the 2021/22 CAF Champions League.
Hearts of Oak who have a record 10 FA Cup titles, are into the quarter finals of the same competition and will fancy a double this season. They are winners of the CAF Champions League in 2000, the Super Cup in 2001 and Confederation Cup in 2004.
