Hearts of Oak captain, Fatawu Mohammed cannot hide his joy as the captain to have led Hearts of Oak to their 21st premier league and first title in 11-years.
Mohammed joined the Phobians from second tier club, Real Tamale United and has since spent eight seasons with the 2000 CAF Champions League winners.
His long term service looked like ending in emptiness but the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League triumph has capped his leadership with success.
The 28-year-old opened up on how happy he is after laying a hand on the first Premier league cup of his career.
“I don’t know what to say, I’m overjoyed. If we have to follow the joy, we might forget the football.
“So long as the league has not ended, we will not over celebrate.
“We have been hungry for a trophy for a very long time, between 11 and 12 years, the trophy has been long.
“Every Hearts follower nationwide has been hungry for a trophy.
“If history has been made with Fatawu [Mohammed] and Barnieh and others have been able to break the deadlock, then it is a big history.” Fatawu Mohammed.
Hearts of Oak drew 1-1 with Liberty Professionals in the penultimate game at the Accra Sports Stadium last Sunday to be crowned champions for the first time in 11-years.
They have a final day clash against WAFA at the Sogakope Park on Sunday, July 18.
Fatawu Mohammed will lead Hearts of Oak to the 2021/22 CAF Champions League which the club won in 2000.
